Religious Education



The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.




RE is taught using the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity. Both syllabuses use a question led approach where each unit aims to explore different aspects of the religion through questions. 




From their RE sessions, children should: 


  • Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.
  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews.
  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.
