Religious Education

Religious Education (RE)

Our RE curriculum follows the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus 2013.  The aim of it is to help pupils develop open, sensitive, reflective and critical approaches to understanding humankind’s varied religions and beliefs, exploring practices, values, beliefs and lifestyles, relating these to their own experiences and to questions of everyday life. This is done through the study of three worldwide religions.  Christianity and Islam are taught from Reception through to Year 6, with Hinduism being studied from Year 3 upwards.  In the lead up to Christian celebrations such as Easter and Christmas, all year groups focus on different aspects of these festivals and are given the opportunity to celebrate them, together with the community, at our local parish church of St John’s.
