An enriching education in a welcoming Christian environment

Religious Education


Our school vision

"This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118 


Our curriculum vision for Religious Education

Our Intent


As a Church Aided school, Religious Education is an important part of the curriculum. Our RE teaching contributes to the distinctive character of the school.  Religious Education seeks to make a major contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils by helping them to acquire the knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other major religions represented in Britain. It also helps them to develop their own beliefs and values.  R.E plays a very important part in our broad, balanced curriculum. Through the use of a variety of teaching techniques such as drama, art, discussion, use of artefacts, stories, pictures, P4C and reflection, pupils have opportunities to learn both about religion and from religion.
