Believing, Achieving, Succeeding

Religious Education

Our RE curriculum is wide and varied. Children learn about the Christian religion and other faiths, including Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism. The children love to visit places of worship and are keen to learn about how people express their beliefs.

We visit our local church for services celebrating Harvest Festival, Christmas, Easter and for a Leavers’ Service at the end of the year.

Recently, we carried out a children's survey to see what they think and feel about RE within our school community. Here are some of their responses. 

It’s fun because we do drama, talk in a group, and I learn new things’- Year 4
