Elmfield is non-doctrinal and non-sectarian but has a Christian orientation. Our seasonal festivals are of an open nature and children from all religions freely participate.

We educate all children, regardless of their cultural or religious backgrounds and we aim to foster a recognition and understanding of all the world cultures and religions. Steiner schools are not part of any church. They espouse no particular religious doctrine but are based on a belief that there is a spiritual dimension to the human being and to all of life.

Parents from a broad spectrum of religious, spiritual and philosophical backgrounds send their children to Steiner schools.
