Codes of Practice
Assemblies and Collective Worship
School assemblies are of a broadly Christian nature. Senior staff together with visiting speakers lead these activities on carefully selected themes. Parents can withdraw their child from collective worship, either in whole or in part via arrangement with the school.
At Ravens Wood we endeavour to promote an enquiring and sympathetic approach to the study of the variety religious beliefs and practices. However, parents can withdraw their child from Religious Studies, either in whole or in part via arrangement with the school.
Special Educational Needs
Ravens Wood is concerned to ensure that all students achieve whether they are gifted or have specific learning difficulties. To this end specific support is provided by the school’s Head of Pupil Development. The school policy incorporates all the requirements of the SEN Code of Practice.
This subject area is part of Science, PSHE and Religious Studies where it is taught within a moral framework that seeks to promote and support the best standards of family life as required by educational law. Parents reserve the right to withdraw their child from these lessons by arrangement with the school.
Equal Opportunities and Racism
Whatever the nature of the local community, children are growing up in a wider multicultural and multiracial society where they are subject to various attitudes towards minority groups. Ravens Wood stands against racism and all forms of discrimination on the grounds of ethnic origin, religion, gender or disability. To read more download our extended document.
