Religious Education (RE)
The aim of Religious Education in school is to teach the children about a range of religious and non-religious beliefs, the important aspects of each religion and seeking to understand how religious or non-religious beliefs influence the way a person chooses to live their life.
A range of religions are studied throughout the school.
In Foundation Stage (Reception) the children encounter Christianity and other faiths through exploring the world around them and developing their understanding of themselves. In Key Stage 1 (Year 1/2) children will study Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) study Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism.
The Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE sets out what should be covered and is taught using a range of resources including Understanding Christianity and Discovery RE.
