Religious Education

Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus. As a Church school,Visit to the mosque great emphasis is placed upon the teaching of Christianity. However, we recognise that our children are growing up in a multi-cultural society and a number of major world religions are also studied.

Through RE, we aim to:

  • develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views
  • focus on concepts as well as content, within the context of enquiry-based learning
  • explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts
  • reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK so that they are prepared for life in modern Britain engage and challenge pupils
  • reflect pupils’ own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion
  • present religious belief as a real, lived phenomenon, not something exotic or belonging to the past
  • take into account the increase in the number of people with non-religious beliefs and identities
  • provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development
  • help to prepare pupils for adult life, enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity for others
