Religious Education (RE)

This school is not affiliated to any religious organisation. We teach about the major world faiths and associated moral issues. This may include providing children with experiences similar to those of a believer in order to make the learning more interesting and relevant to their own lives, but at no point do we expect to bring children within any faith.

The school’s RE teaching is in line with Warwickshire’s Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Our scheme of work is based around Warwickshire’s Units of work for RE. Each half term, Christianity is taught alongside one other world religion. This is based around a particular theme for each year group.

It is important that RE is taught in an imaginative and exciting way. Wherever possible, visitors are encouraged to come in to talk to the children, and trips to places of worship are arranged.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons.
