Religious Education

The intent of R.E. is to help our children to develop a reflective approach to life by showing an understanding and tolerance of beliefs, attitudes, religious experiences and practices in the world around them.

We use the Bedfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (2018-2023).  The aim of RE is to contribute to the development of children as individuals and members of society.  This is done by fostering a reflective approach to life and developing an understanding and tolerance of the beliefs, attitudes, religious experiences and practices in the world around them.  We teach children about major world faiths and help them to learn from religions.  We use a range of resources when teaching, such as artefacts, video clips, art, music, and when possible, special visitors.

On Wednesdays our assembly is led by the Reverend Peter Kay from St Peter's Church, Thurleigh or Ms Sue Ives. (At the present time this is done remotely)

Parents can choose to exercise their right to withdraw their children from R.E. lessons.
