Monks enjoys strong links with the local church and our RE teaching follows the Diocesan scheme of work from the Oxford Diocesan Trust.
We believe that RE develops in pupils a sense of community and belonging. It helps the children to grow, share, understand and respectfully challenge, and be challenged by, people of different lifestyles, beliefs and practices.
The whole school joins together each day after lunch for collective worship. The school currently, joins in a virtual worship focusing on one of our school values, led by Miss Robinson. This value is then followed up in lesson time as children think about how they can reflect this value in their behaviour. Our subsequent worships for the week follow this school value too.
The following prayers have been written by our school children during our daily worship time:
Christian Value: Perseverance
Help us to get things right, if we get things wrong help us to persevere. Amen
Thank you for all the things that we have to learn. Thank you for not letting us down when we want to give up but you help us persevere. Amen
Please help us to never give up and always try our best, even when we're stuck. Amen
Help us to persevere with our work and keep going no matter what. Help us to keep going even if things seem impossible and help us to defeat COVID. Amen

Christian Value: Thankfulness
The focus of our worship today was St.Martin
Thank you for Children in Need who have helped save hundreds of people. Help us to raise money for other children suffering from pain. We wish to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Children in Need reminded us that just £1.00 can change a child's life.
Help us to be thankful for our food, family, friends and school.
Be thankful for your family, friends and God for helping you for your whole life.
