Religious Education

Religious Education

As a Church of England academy, RE plays a crucial role in helping children to flourish and become the best they can be. RE looks at what it is to be human and how we engage well with one another, with the world around us, and ultimately with God. Religion continues to shape us and our world, and studying RE can give children and young people tools with which to examine beliefs, attitudes and values that mould us and guide us in life.

Our curriculum is focused around Christianity through the Understanding Christianity scheme. However, as we follow the York Diocese to guide our teaching of RE, the children are also given the opportunity every year to learn about and respect other religions in addition to Christianity, with a focus on spirituality and the relevance to the children’s lives. This allows us to develop the children into respectful, well rounded and balanced individuals.
