Religious Education


As a Church of England primary school, Religious Education forms a fundamental part of our curriculum. We explore key elements of Christianity alongside developing a clear understanding of the beliefs of other major world faiths. 


We follow two key overarching schemes to structure and sequence our teaching and learning in R.E.; we currently focus on Understanding Christianity and are developing our use of The Emmanuel Project


Understanding Christianity is a resource that supports the teaching of Christianity in Religious Education, supported and developed by the Church of England. It explores significant theological concepts within Christianity as part of ‘developing pupils’ wider religious, theological and cultural literacy’. It seeks to ‘support teachers in developing their own knowledge and understanding of Christianity theology to be able to teach with confidence.’


The Emmanuel Project was developed with similar aims, and the scheme unpacks key theological concepts in different world faiths, viewing their scriptures, practices and lifestyles systematically.
