RE and Collective Worship

 The last Ofsted Inspection Report stated:

“Parents, rightly, say that this is a friendly and welcoming school, which fosters a sense of community in which children are cherished, nurtured, valued, grow in self-confidence and show eagerness to learn. Making sure pupils enjoy learning, keep safe and healthy and play an active part within the community have a high priority in the curriculum and in the day-to-day life of the school. Consequently, pupils’ good personal development and well-being give them a head start with their education.”

 

Religious affiliations

North Ferriby School is a part of the primary education provision of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, but has Church of England Voluntary Controlled status and the church owns the land to the west of Church Road and provides three governors to support the strategic management of the school.

Religious education is according to the Local Authority syllabus. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from religious education and collective worship. An alternative activity provided by the parents will be supervised by a member of staff.

 

Launch of RE:quest – A Resource For Schools

 The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu recently officially launched the new RE:quest online resources which explore the Christian Faith, produced by Youth for Christ. Request.org.uk is free and has been designed to support outstanding teaching of RE and independent, enquiry-led learning by students exploring the big questions.

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, said: “In looking outwards and asking questions of God and the Universe, we find that we actually discover more about ourselves and our own place in the world around us”.

RE:quest was first pioneered in 2000 and has recently been redesigned to cater for a generation of students who spend an increasing amount of time in a virtual world. It includes over 250 short films, a bank of interactive tours of churches and engaging online games and quizzes to help students explore what it means to be a Christian in Britain today and begin to ask big questions about life, identity and purpose for themselves.
