Religious Education

Our RE Curriculum

The teaching and learning of the RE curriculum has undergone a huge and exciting change with the introduction of Understanding Christianity in September 2018. This is a new way of learning Christianity which provides the tools to engage children in an informed dialogue which will support pupils in developing their understanding of Christianity, understanding the world and their own experiences within it. Throughout the year, children will also be given the opportunity to learn about two other world faiths.


Through Understanding Christianity, children will develop their skills and knowledge using biblical texts and understanding the impact on the lives of Christians. Teachers have already noticed children growing in their understanding of religion, belief of themselves and the world around them. We have seen this through the theological discussions we have had, the creative, practical ways that children have presented their learning and the balanced and informed conversations children have had with their peers.
