Hartsfield School is non-denominational and the teaching of Religious Education is in accordance with the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus.

Our teaching encompasses the encouragement of respect for ourselves and each other, tolerance and concern for others, understanding of different faiths and religions, and sensitivity to multicultural issues. These areas are provided at levels appropriate to the child within lessons, informal conversations, assemblies and normal class work.

School assemblies take place on a daily basis, providing a time of quiet reflection within an act of celebration or worship, which could be linked to religious festivals, school events or national or international occasions. The act of worship is broadly of a Christian nature.  

Parents not wishing their child to participate in such assemblies or in Religious Education lessons should consult the Headteacher.
