Religious Education

Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus. This RE syllabus is designed to deepen pupils’ knowledge about religions and develop their ‘religious literacy’ by studying one religion at a time (‘systematic’ units), and then including ‘thematic’ units, which build on learning by comparing the religions, beliefs and practices studied.


The teaching of RE forms part of the Early Years curriculum for PSED and Understanding the World.


We want children who ask questions about life, its meaning, beliefs, identity and values. The endpoints we expect children to reach at each phase of their learning can be viewed below.


Professional development opportunities through the Diocesan team are varied and make a difference. Staff training has had real impact as staff knowledge of the links, symbols, images and 'big story' have been developed. C.P.D in Religious Education is ongoing. As a core subject this matters in order for us to give children the best provision and opportunities to learn. Coupled with assessment which has purpose and impacts on future plans we make sure that children are both supported and challenged.


RE Subject Intent

It is our intent that children will know and understand a range of religious and non-religious worldviews, so that they can: describe, explain and analyse religious and non-religious beliefs and practices. We want them to recognise the diversity which exists within and between individuals and communities. Through our RE curriculum, children will know and understand a range of responses to questions of meaning, purpose and truth.
