Thinking and linking our Religious knowledge and understanding is part of the bigger picture at Amble First school. Throughout the year we reflect upon, celebrate and experience religious occasions together in:
 
Our Learn to Fly assemblies
Our close links with the local churches- we celebrate harvest, Christmas and Easter at St Cuthbert's
Whole school celebrations- for example, Chinese New Year
Our visitors
Our charity work
