St Peter's Church of England Primary School

Religious Education

Religious Education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. At St Peter’s Church of England Primary School, we aim to develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other world religions.   Our curriculum plans can be found further down this page.Children 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.

  • To promote the spiritual and moral growth of the pupils to enable them to develop an awareness of themselves, as well as a consideration of others, and appreciation for the natural world and a sense of community through shared beliefs and values.
  • To help pupils to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions in the United Kingdom.
  • To enable pupils to be able to reflect on their own experiences and to develop a personal response to the fundamental questions of life;
  • To enable pupils to develop an understanding of religious traditions and to appreciate the cultural differences in Britain today;
  • To enable pupils to develop a positive attitude, respecting the views of others who hold different beliefs from their own
  • Religious education should not just convey information about religions or try to convert pupils to a particular religious viewpoint or tradition. It should not convey any other religion as superior to others.
