Religious Education (RE)

Religious Education  

We aim for our pupils to be religiously literate and able to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief. 

We follow the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education produced by the agreed syllabus for Religious Education in Lincolnshire. Religious Education (RE) is taught to all children, except those who are opted out by their parents.  

During their time in school, pupils will: 

  • develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions and world views 

  • focus on concepts as well as content, within the context of enquiry based learning  explore authentic religious material, e.g. sacred texts 

  • reflect diversity in terms of the changing religious landscape of the UK (see 2011 census below) so that they are prepared for life in modern Britain  engage and challenge pupils 

  • reflect pupils’ own experiences and provide a safe space for discussion 

  • present religious belief as a real, lived phenomenon, not something exotic or belonging to the past 

  • take into account the increase in the number of people with non-religious beliefs and identities  

  • provide opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development 

  • help to prepare pupils for adult life, enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity for others 


Assessment data is collated each term (x3) by class teachers and an overview maintained by the Curriculum Leader.
