Huby is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School. Although it was originally founded by the church it is now voluntarily controlled through the North Yorkshire County Council. We are proud of our links with All Hallows Church in Sutton-on-the-Forest and the Methodist Church in Huby.
All children take part in a daily act of Collective Worship, which is wholly or mainly of a Christian character and can draw upon fables, stories, legends and current affairs. We also explore other faiths in a similar way. We believe that Collective Worship gives children the opportunity to worship together and to consider spiritual and moral issues or to explore individual beliefs.
Religious Education is taught in all classes and we follow the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. In their time at school, your child will learn about Christianity as well as other faiths and cultures. This encourages understanding, respect and tolerance of other beliefs and cultures and prepares your child for later life.
As a parent, you have the right to request that your child withdraws from Collective Worship or Religious Education on the grounds of religious belief or conscience. Please contact the Head teacher to discuss your request and the alternative provision for your child.
