Religious Education

Religious Education is taught across the school.

We follow the South Gloucestershire agreed syllabus for Religious Education and supplement our teaching of Christianity, with units from the Understanding Christianity programme of study.

In Key Stage 1, children are required to learn about Christianity and Judaism or Islam. 

In Key stage 2 they cover a range of different religions or faiths, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism and Humanism.  


Religious Education is taught through art, drama and writing. We also arrange visits to various places of worship and welcome guest speakers from members of different faiths into school, in order to encourage children to become more aware of our multicultural society.


The South Gloucestershire Syllabus states that:

   'RE explores big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to

    how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living'
