Latymer Prep School

Religious Study & Philosophy



RSP enables pupils to consider and respond to a range of important questions related to their own and others’ spiritual development, the development of values and attitudes and fundamental questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life. Fundamental British Values (FBV) and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) values are embedded within this subject (see paragraph 9 below). A safe, respectful, discussion environment is nurtured throughout. Philosophy for Children (P4C) is incorporated. Mindfulness is introduced (the Mindfulness in Schools Project paws.b program). RSP is required to be taught to all pupils in school. However, parents have the right to withdraw their children from RSP if they wish to do so.
