Religious Education

Our RE Vision

As a church 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 – Forgiveness (Spring 2)
The second half of the spring term coincides with lent and Easter, therefore our chosen Christian value is Forgiveness. This value is central to the Easter story.

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will no be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37

When a child or member of staff displays our Christian value, this will be celebrated and displayed on our Christian values tree as part of our whole school prayer space.

"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." Colossians 3:13

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 forgiveness among their peers.
