As a Church of England Academy, Religious Education is a distinctive and core part of our curriculum. We aim to help children to acquire and develop their knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions represented in Great Britain; to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape life and behaviour, develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and promotes and enhances their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall aims and values of the school to ensure children flourish in knowledge.

We ensure that the teaching of Religious Education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human. We want our children to be able to explore faith, reflect on their new knowledge and apply their knowledge in a way that best suits themselves.
