Religious Education

RE 

At our school we recognise that Religious Education helps us to understand others and to reflect on ourselves as whole people, experiencing life through the body, the mind and the spirit. We want our pupils to understand the significance of religion and its contribution to people’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Our Religious Education work is planned using material from the Cheshire West and Chester Standing Advisory Council on RE and we have a full scheme of work to support the long term curriculum map below. The Standing Advisory Committee for teaching of RE (SACRE) sets out the RE curriculum for Community Schools and the emphasis is on Christianity, as the predominant religion in the UK and Europe. Nevertheless, an overarching aim is that children learn about the different beliefs, secular and religious, in their community and the wider world, and to respect the beliefs of others, similar or different to their own.

Parents have the right by law to withdraw their children from the Religious Education curriculum. In this event, the school will undertake responsibility for the supervision of withdrawn pupils with regard to health and safety. We ask that you make an appointment with the head teacher and we would expect that you provide a programme of work for your child to complete while their class are learning in RE so that they can work independently in another classroom.
