Religious and moral education takes place throughout the age ranges. Emphasis is placed on valuing and respecting each other as individuals and establishing a code of conduct for life, based in a Christian ethos. The beliefs and customs of other religions are taught and links within them are highlighted. The schools follows the Diocesan Syllabus for R.E, ( a copy of which is available in school for inspection by parents).

Harvest is celebrated outside; we had a Celtic Harvest.

Our Nativity is celebrated in St. Mary's Church on Holy Island.

Stewardship (Beach cleaning) on Holy Island.


A Statement of Worship

Collective Acts of Worship take place on a daily basis. These assembly times are used as a focal time for the school to emphasise its positive ethos, achievement and to have time for reflection and reverence. Our acts of worship are mainly Christian in nature though special occasions and festivals of other cultures and religions are recognised and valued. It is consistent with the Diocesan School Worship Policy.

The incumbent at St. John the Baptist Church (Lowick) holds a weekly act of worship at Lowick C. of E. First School, in addition a member of the local Baptist Church holds a weekly act of worship at Lowick. In Holy Island C. of E. First School the incumbent of St. Mary’s Church (Holy Island) holds a weekly act of collective worship.


Collective worship is not just held in school, we sometimes visit the Gospel Garden with our local vicar or go to our local parish church.



We have looked at Courage, Compassion and Co-operation during Collective Worship; we then produced a small play.


Parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship and Religious Education lessons.
Those who wish to do so are requested to inform the Headteacher.
