Religious Education (RE)

 

As a Church of England (Aided) school, the main focus of RE is the Christian faith that shapes the ethos and values of our school community, however we also learn about other religions around the world. 80% of the RE learning in KS1 is about Christianity and 70% of the learning in KS2 is about Christianity.  We follow the Guildford Diocese RE Guidelines. These enable the pupils to pose questions and develop skills relevant to the world today whilst exploring the Christian faith more deeply. The RE curriculum forms an important part of our school’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) teaching.

 We use a variety of ways to learn, understand and explore various religions including role play, discussions, art, debates, visits, visitors, Pause Days and close links to the St Lawrence Church. Through these we are aiming for 10% of the timetable to be RE. The children are given feedback from the previous lesson and are assessed at the end of every topic as to how much they understood.
