Christian Distinctiveness

Our Christian Values

Family, Love, Honesty, Respet, Wisdom, Servive

Great importance is placed on the Christian values of kindness, consideration and respect for others at The Royal School. We have a fundamental 'family' atmosphere which is reflective of the good relationships which exist between parents, staff and the children. Care is taken to respect the distinct personality of each child and to encourage attitudes favourable for their social and emotional growth.

Although we are a Church of England Crown Aided school, we welcome all children irrespective of their parents’ beliefs and respect all religions.

All children receive Religious Education as laid down in the Berkshire Agreed Syllabus. We believe that RE should promote the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of pupils, enriching a reflective approach to living, through their study of faith. We address the teaching and practices of Christianity and other principal religions.

There is a daily act of collective prayer for all pupils. It provides the opportunity for children to worship God, to consider moral issues and explore their own beliefs and thoughts. We have close ties with The Royal Chapel and the vicar regularly leads our collective worship. Parents are welcomed to our Family and Class Assemblies to share with us our reflections and celebrations.

Parents have a right under the 1988 Educatin Act to withdraw their child from RE or Collective Worship.
