The programme is based upon the Hampshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, Living Difference. It is taught through termly topics in which children learn about Christianity and other world faiths. Religious festivals are explored with the children to ensure that they develop understanding and that there is clear progression of learning.
RE is also linked with other curriculum areas covering knowledge and understanding of religion, awareness of life experiences, exploring and responding. Children are encouraged to make wise choices and to become aware of their own values. Through opportunities to appreciate different ideas, beliefs and cultures, children are encouraged to develop responsibility, co-operation, self-discipline and tolerance.
We have a daily act of worship, which is non-denominational. Stories, poems, artwork, music and stories from the Old and New Testament are used to provoke children to reflect and develop their own thinking.
We recognise that parents have the legal right to withdraw their child from RE and Collective Worship. If you have any concerns, please come and discuss them with us.
