Religious Education

As a Church School we seek to promote the religious, spiritual, moral and cultural development of our children through RE. We enable children to reflect upon and respond to religious and spiritual beliefs, practices, insights and experiences. The experiences offered to our children are based on the beliefs and traditions of Christianity. We follow the Nottinghamshire Local Authority’s syllabus  ‘Religious Education for All’ and personalise it to our children through Understanding Christianity. We explore other religions such as Islam, Judaism and Hinduism in order to deepen understanding in a multi-cultural and multi-faith world and we promote Christian values in everything we do.


R.E. in Action Find out more about some of the wonderful things we get up to in addition to our R.E. lessons here and an overview of our R.E. Curriculum  here.


The Foundation Governors of the school take a lead in this area. Currently the Chair of Governors and members of our Church community meet to monitor our provision and ensure that we provide quality experiences for the children so they can develop as citizens of the world.


All children take part in an act of Collective Worship every day and have opportunities for quiet reflection in their own classroom reflection areas.  We have prayers at the end of each day and before meals. All children are invited to take part and show respect for each other. These are opportunities for them to take time to reflect on a Christian value or have a quiet moment in a busy day and to develop their spiritual awareness. We are supported through our link with the local parish and we are able to use both the school and the nearby church, St Thomas’ for our Religious Education.
