Religious Education

Intent, Implementation and Impact




Our RE Curriculum is inclusive and ensures children learn about the 6 main UK religions which enables them to gain a deeper understanding of how religion influences an individual's life. By educating our pupils about how other people live their lives and their religious beliefs we enable them to reflect on what they believe and the choices they make, thus enabling them to develop tolerance and understanding.
