THE LEARN TOGETHER ETHICAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM
22nd March - World Water Day 2016
To celebrate World Water Day and raise money, we started the day all dressed in BLUE, with a BLUE breakfast, full of BLUE food. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so much fun and thank you to Made in Bristol TV for joining us to help spread the word.
In an Educate Together school a daily period of time is set aside for the ethical education curriculum. This programme is called the “Learn Together” curriculum and is published by Educate Together. It defines the core values of all teaching and learning in the school. It is subject to continuous review and development in our schools and decisions made at Annual General Meetings of the sponsor. A copy of the curriculum is available from the trust and is downloadable from the Educate Together website.
The programme is divided into four strands:
- Moral and Spiritual Development
- Justice and Equality
- Ethics and the Environment
- Belief Systems.
More information on our curriculum can be found in our booklet, What is an Educate Together School?

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HAPPINESS - 20th March 2017
Redfield celebrated 'International Day of Happiness' by thinking about how to make others happy. Some of the children went onto Church Road to hand out sweets to people in the community whilst others baked biscuits for the old people's home across the road. In school, children and staff thought about making others happy and we created a tree of happiness!
