Religious Education

Curriculum Intent 

Our curriculum is designed to equip children with the knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain, in order to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape life and behaviour.  We want our children to develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and will plan opportunities to explore this in a safe environment.   


Our Christian values are at the heart of all we do, in which ‘Life in all its fullness’ is incorporated throughout our whole curriculum, not just RE.  As a Church of England school, we believe our children should develop their own thinking and understanding of Christianity. We follow the scheme of work in Understanding Christianity to ensure logical and progressive teaching so that our pupils leave school with a coherent knowledge of Christian beliefs and practices.
