opportunities to learn about and understand their beliefs and those of others, and how religion influences and plays a part in many people’s lives. The whole school follows the Discovery RE scheme of work with additional planning included to ensure that the Essex Agreed Syllabus for RE is being taught.
The teaching of RE includes teaching about different religions, including those followed by members of our school community. It includes discussions, assemblies, books, stories and artifacts. The children also have opportunities to explore key questions and to make links with their own lives, considering and responding to questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life.
