Teaching of Religious Education
Religious Education (RE) is a subject taught throughout school that aims to develop children’s understanding of the world in which they live. Through RE teaching, children will learn about different religions, traditions, practices and beliefs. RE also promotes children’s tolerance and mutual respect in a diverse society.
RE is taught directly each Wednesday afternoon for up to an hour in Reception and Key Stage One. Children in EYFS have access to multi cultural resources to enhance their provision.
Staff follow the Nottinghamshire County Council Religious Education Syllabus in which children engage in whole class and small group activities.
Trips and visits to places of worship, including our local church, enhance children’s experiences and promote curiosity.
Through our religious education teaching we endeavour to build strong community links and work closely with St Mary’s church in Jacksdale.
