Religious Education at Christ Church


Christ Church is a Church of England Primary School that dedicates itself to providing a Christian environment that offers all children the highest quality of teaching and learning opportunities.

Religious Education has a high profile in school life with lessons providing fully for the needs of all learners.

We follow the SDBE RE Syllabus across the school, enhancing the units to fit the needs of the pupils and nature of the school. Please see curriculum map below. RE is taught by enthusiastic & motivated teachers who inspire the learners.

Pupils develop a clear understanding of Christianity and a broad range of religious beliefs. The pupils use their skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation, reflection and evaluation to understand the impact of religion on believers.

Pupils have a thorough knowledge and sound understanding of the Christian faith through a wide range of learning opportunities, such as weekly Religious Education lessons, daily acts of collective worship, church services and educational visits. Pupils are able to make real links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist and Hindu faith.
