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 – Service (Summer 2)
The notion of service calls us to lay
selfish things aside for the needs of others. It is also an important value in all relationships.

Jesus was called the 'servant king': we are learning
that his mission was to serve God and to serve all
those people he met, through his teaching, his example and the way he led his life.
We are finding out about unsung heroes who serve
us at school, at home and in our local community. We are also thinking about the ways in which
we can serve others in these places too.

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.

"There is more happiness in giving than in receiving"
Acts 20

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 'service' among their peers.
