Religious Education

What is RE?


Ephesians 3:20

“Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us.”



Religious Education (RE) aims to develop children's understanding of the world's religions. Through religious education, children will learn about different religions and their traditions, practices and beliefs. It is important for our children to learn to be respectful of both their own and other people's beliefs & cultures. This helps make schools & communities a fairer place for everybody, whatever their religion, culture, language or background.
