At Holy Cross Church of England Primary School, we provide learners a broad and balanced curriculum in Religious Education. As a Church of England school we provide an increased Christianity element to our RE teaching, however we aim to equip our pupils with experiences and an understanding of the diverse world in which we live.
Each unit follows an enquiry cycle – Engage, enquire, explore, evaluate, express – which ensure the children learn, question, develop and understand each area of learning, revisiting concepts and values throughout their learning journey.
The aims of religious education are to enable pupils to:
The children participate in weekly RE lessons covering Christianity and a number of other world faiths. The schools use the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus for RE (2019) as a basis for the teaching of RE, please see below for our long term plan and RE policy.
Our RE lead is Mrs Waterson.
As a parent/carer you have the right to withdraw your child/children from RE lessons, please contact the school if you wish to do so.
