To support our lived ethos we teach the Learn Together Programme. This is our Ethical Education Curriculum and is divided into four strands as described below.
Moral and Spiritual
The general aim of this strand is to help develop in children a critical knowledge, understanding and awareness of right and wrong and a heightened awareness of social, ethical and moral standards through reflecting on the meaning and purpose of life. The strand should encourage and develop the individual on the journey to inner discovery and empower the child to make informed moral decisions.
Equality and Justice
The general aim of this strand is to develop in children a critical knowledge, understanding and awareness of issues relating to human rights, equality, culture and diversity, social justice and social inclusiveness and to empower them to make a difference.
- Exploring human rights
- Promoting Equality
- Exploring the Democratic Process
- Activating Equality through Positive Action
The general aim of this strand is to develop in children a critical knowledge understanding and awareness of the teachings of religious and non-theistic belief systems and how these systems relate to our shared human experience.

Children will be encouraged to develop an understanding of the right to hold and practice differing beliefs and what it means to live in a world of diverse beliefs.
