Religious Education


We are working to develop the essential characteristics of religiously literate pupils to have:


  • An oustanding level of religious understanding and knowledge
  • A thorough engagement with a range of qustions about the meaning and significance of existence
  • The ability to ask significant and highly reflective questions about religion
  • A strong understanding of how the beliefs, values, practices and ways of life within any religion cohere together
  • The ability to link the study of religion and belief to personal reflectsion on meaning and purpose
  • A wide knowledge and understanding across a wide range of religions and beliefs


We follow the Hampshire agreed syllabus for RE entitled "Living Difference".


Foundation Stage children are introduced to simple concepts, specifically celebration, specialness and belonging.


Key stage 1 children work with concepts that are within their own experience for example; changing emotions, storytelling, symbol of light, Gods, angels, and ceremony


Key stage 2 children work with simple concepts but with more complexity for example; freedom, belief, authority and interpretation, discipleship, myth, rites of passage, Church, umma, and Torah
