I teach in a church of england school and as lent began this week there has been a strong focus on that in assembly (the children were ashed and the headteacher mentioned teachers praying at lunch). Since there has been such a strong focus on this I have had two children ask me about religion. Once asked me (half way through our PE warm up) what religion I am, as it was during PE (right after the ashing assembly) there wasn't really time to answer as we had to move on to the game. Another asked me during the other assembly whether I went to the prayer meeting, which I honestly replied no. However I am not sure what to do in future, as I am an atheist but I know it's a church of England school so would there be any policies on this. Has anyone had any experience in this area? I plan on asking my mentor at some point but among SATs preparation and behaviour/bullying/trips/booster/clubs/resourcing problems/ MTP etc. I never seem to have time. So any input would be greatly appreciated!
