Religious Education                                                                    Back

 

Our vision for Religious Education is for pupils…

  • To recognise the importance of Christian teachings and values in our church school.
  • To become familiar with and understand the themes and stories of the Big story of the Bible.
  • To give children opportunities and experiences where they can question and interrogate the nature of belief in the world’s major faiths and world views.
  • For children to be able to express their own beliefs.

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their children from RE and appropriate provision will be made.

 

         

Each year group looks at 6 units of RE a year. Some units come from the Warwickshire Agreed Syllabus and the others from Understanding Christianity.
