Davyhulme Primary School, Davyhulme
Partial Opening and Restricted Admissions - We continue to operate and apply a strict approach to all applications for school places . At present we have 131 pupils ( 25% ) in school with a further 48 families wanting 62 places. The new variants of the virus pose an increased level of threat according to the media of between 50% and 70% so our control measures across society should feel 50% - 70% stricter than the first wave back in March ...and it does not feel like that ' out and about '. Despite our best efforts we have had to Quarantine two ( empty classrooms ) for 72 hours as a precautionary step on advice from Trafford cleaning services.School will be able to provide more school places when staff have had  vaccines and feel safer. If a member of your household goes for a Covid test please do not send the children into school until you have the results of the test and they are negative.

RE

At Davyhulme Primary School, children are taught to understand and respect all world religions. In R.E. lessons, there is an emphasis on drawing comparisons between different religious beliefs and rituals. As a school, our lessons focus on Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Hinduism, with the flexibility to include the beliefs of other faiths as well, so all children feel represented. We aim to include a consideration of non-religious beliefs and values too.


We aim for all R.E. lessons to be based on questioning and to be interactive and engaging. Children are encouraged to share their own beliefs with their class in an open and tolerant way and to draw comparisons between their own beliefs and others. In lessons, links are also made with our school Values, with similarities being highlighted. As a school, we would like every child to have a first-hand experience of places of worship belonging to different faiths by the time they leave us.
