At Atkinson Road Academy we take pride in the fact we are a multicultural and multi-faith school where every child is valued and respected no matter their belief or background.

Religion and world views taught at Atkinson Road are relevant to our community and to the wider world. We believe that every child has the right to express their opinions, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously. We teach the children that everyone has the right to choose and practise their own religion and beliefs, both in our school and in the wider community. We endeavour to provide opportunities to meet and explore other faiths and encourage our children to ask questions about the world they live in.

We aim to inspire awe and wonder in our children through real-life experiences and with the use of religious artefacts and books. We encourage them to explore and question faiths, while developing a sound understanding of the impact religion has on people’s lives. So, through a celebration of diversity, children leave Atkinson Road equipped for life in a multi-faith world.
