Religious Education

In Religious Education, pupils learn about (and from) the six major world religions. We particularly focus on religious celebrations and events as a context for children learning about different religions and cultures. As a Church of England academy, we celebrate key important dates from the Christian calendar which parents are all invited to join us for, at Church or the Academy itself.  We use the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus units of work to teach the six major world religions as well as the new Understanding Christianity resource produced by the Church of England.

The primary purpose of religious education must be to enable young people to make sense of themselves and the world in which they live, and from these seeds will grow communities equipped to live well together.

Why?

Nigel Genders, Church of England chief education officer

We live in a diverse nation of rich traditions, where people of different faiths and worldviews live and work together. The Bible is the key text for understanding the huge impact the Christian faith has had on the language, culture, history and values of both the United Kingdom and the wider world.
