Religious Education

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 – Love (Autumn 2)
God loves each and every one of us and he sent his son, Jesus, to show us how to care for each other. Love is a key value for us because the Bible teaches us that God is love. God showed how much he loves us and how to love others when he sent his son Jesus to live on earth.

In school, we show love to each other through small acts of kindness and through encouraging others with kind words.When a child or member of staff displays our Christian value, we also display it on our Christian values tree as part of our whole school prayer space.

'Let all that you do be in love' (1 Corinthians 16:14)

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