Religious Education

Our curriculum

We use an equiry based approach in the teaching of RE, that encourages theological literacy and deep questioning of faith.

Christianity is taught in every year group, with Christmas and Easter given new treatment each year, developing the learning in a progressive way. Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism are also covered. Humanist perspectives are added when appropriate in some enquiries. 

We believe Religious Education is a key player in engendering knowledge and understanding which can lead to tolerance and respect for others and their beliefs. It does not, however, teach children to passively accept, but rather encourages evaluation and critical thinking, equipping them to consider belief positions they encounter

    Prayer Day March 24th (Hilary Crooks)

    Newton Class enjoyed exploring the Prayer Stations today, which were based on the Easter Story. They were particularly thinking about how they could act on what they have learnt to improve the lives of others. They thought a good starting place was looking for children in the playground who could use a friend to play with.


    The class also built on the knowledge they have acquired through their Enquiry Question this term "Is Christianity Still a Strong Religion 2000 years after Jesus was on Earth". They acted out conversations between people from different countries comparing their experiences of whether they can see signs of a strong Christian faith. Super work from all groups, and lots of house points earned!
