Our RE Vision

As a Church of England school, we believe that Religious Education both supports and strengthens what we aim to do in every aspect of school life.

Our Principles of RE Teaching

We know that great Religious Education happens in our school when...

  • Our curriculum reflects developing the whole child; spiritual, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually.
  • Children develop a sound knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other faiths.
  • Children understand the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures.
  • Children engage with religion in a sensitive and open way.
  • Children are encouraged to explore and learn to communicate their own beliefs, values and experiences.
  • Children are equipped with the skills of investigation, reflection, empathy, expression and evaluation for the real world.

Christian Value – Hope (Summer 1)
This half term we will be looking at the Christian Value of Hope. Christian hope is rooted in the love and faithfulness of God. It is not just wishful thinking but a firm belief that God can be relied upon. It is more than wishing things could be better, it is about believing that the world can be better and being prepared to do something about it to help.

'There is always hope.'
Psalm 73:26

Collective Worship Council
The Christian value is promoted throughout the school and explored in our weekly virtual Collective Worship. The children in the Collective Worship Council are planning, delivering and evaluating many of our Collective Worship sessions and are keen to promote 'hope' among their peers. We have a home school pack linked to our Christian value this time all about 'hope'. Why not take a look?
