Religious Education

Brown's C of E Primary School Plan for RE (2 year cycle)

Religious Education at Brown's C of E Primary School


Young children are naturally inquisitive and are fascinated by themselves, their families, other people and the wonders of the world. Religious Education (RE) enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. Through the teaching of RE at Brown's C of E Primary School, we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of not only Christianity but also of other world religions. We encourage children to reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions. Time is provided to enable pupils to reflect on Bible and moral stories and absorb their meaning. Prayers, stories, poetry and role play are used as a means of helping children to express and develop their personal beliefs. We aim to support our children in becoming religiously literate citizens whose knowledge and understanding of the modern world ensures they are respectful to all.
