As a Church of England School we seek to promote the Christian values of collective and individual care and responsibility; this goes hand in hand with our school vision for every child to 'Ask, Seek and Knock in everything they do in life.”  The school aims to "serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.”

The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

The RE syllabus (Worcester Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity)  is based around a key question approach, where the questions open up the content to be studied.  These questions support teachers in delivering high-quality RE that enables coherence and progression.  The key questions give structured support in terms of ‘emerging’, ‘expected’ and ‘exceeding’ learning outcomes and suggested content to enable good planning and progression.

Pupils are taught RE on a weekly basis in all year groups through drama, art, discussion as well as written work.

Syllabus Content

The syllabus requires that all pupils learn from Christianity in each key stage.  In addition, pupils will learn from the principal religions represented in the UK, in line with the law.  Non-religious worldviews including for example, humanism, will also be  the focus for study.
