Our Church - St Andrew's, Much Hadham

St Andrew’s School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School and Nursery in the Diocese of St Albans. The whole school frequently walk to St Andrew's Church for celebrations and special school services. These services are led by the local clergy. The clergy regularly come in to lead worship in school and are often accompanied by our worship bear. We consider ourselves very fortunate that members of the congregation and village community support our School in so many ways and are regular visitors.

Religious Education

A carefully planned programme of Religious Education based on The Bedfordshire Scheme of Work and Understanding Christianity is taught throughout the school. Teaching about the Christian religion has a major role. The children also have the opportunity to study other world faiths.

Our pupils learn about religion through stories, books, drama, music, dance, film clips, visits and visiting speakers. Our children learn to compare and contrast the beliefs of different faiths and develop an understanding and tolerance of religious experiences and attitudes.

Moral education is part of the daily life of the school. Emphasis is placed on the school as a family, where children learn to co-operate with one another and to take responsibility and care for each other.

Assemblies and Collective Acts Of Worship

A collective Act of Christian Worship is held daily and a member of the local clergy visits our School fortnightly to lead worship. 

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons and from collective acts of worship.

Worship Group

Some of our Year 6 pupils meet regularly with Mrs King, our Headteacher, to discuss Worship in our school. Children are often involved in daily worship in our school, leading prayers and reading from the Bible.
