Collective Worship

Hovingham School, being a Church of England school, lays emphasis on Christian worship, following the festivals and celebrations of the Church whilst also including topical events, seasonal festivals, lives of famous people and stories or legends. Acts of worship are held in school every day except on Wednesdays when they are held in All Saints Church, Hovingham.

Parents, friends and villagers are invited to annual Mothering Sunday,  Harvest Festival and Christmas Carol Services held in All Saints Church, Hovingham, and similarly to the weekly worship held in the Church.

Parents have the right, under the Education Act of 1944, to withdraw their children from R.E. and Collective Worship if they so wish.

Religious Education

All County and Controlled schools must provide religious education for all pupils (apart from those withdrawn by their parents) as part of the basic curriculum. Hovingham School has adopted the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus and Guidelines for Collective Worship. RE Statement of Entitlement for Church Schools

Sex Education

The provision of Sex Education in Hovingham School is the responsibility of the Governing Body under the mandate of the 1986 Education Act. It will be dealt with as part of a theme  or in response to a child’s query, when it is answered in a factual way in the context of a Christian approach to family life.  Puberty and human reproduction are covered for year 5 and 6 children in sessions provided by experienced teaching staff. Parents are consulted and informed of this programme of Sex Education and are given the option of withdrawing their children from these sessions. This has proved to be an effective approach.

Equal Opportunities

The school believes in equal opportunities for all regardless of gender, racial background or disability (physical or intellectual).  We recognise that all children must have every opportunity to develop to the fullest extent. The primary objective of this school will, therefore, be to educate, develop and prepare all our pupils, whatever their sex, colour, culture, origin or ability, for life as adults.


In Key Stage 1 school reading books are sent home with a reading record booklet so both school and parents are aware of progress. Please make sure that you record the book that your child has read and comment in the reading record book, so that the teachers can use that information to help with work in school. Spellings and “tricky words” are also sent home for children to learn to read and to spell.

In addition an amount of homework is given each week to children in Key Stage 2, e.g. learning tables, learning spellings, completing/preparing work, a maths game or task linked to their current theme. It is still important for children in KS2 to read regularly at home and this is a key part of their homework.
