We believe that the effectiveness of the religious education is good and our children are enthusiastic learners in their RE.
They are inspired to develop broad learning skills and attitudes that contribute to their overall progress and enjoyment of learning. Our teaching benefits from a clear, whole school plan, with exemplified units of work and a good range of quality resources. The use of these is supporting high quality, effective teaching.
Teachers are enthusiastic about teaching RE and well-planned lessons encourage the children to engage positively.
Children confidently share their RE work with a sense of pride in their learning. Their work demonstrates a variety of skills and a clear understanding of how religious education reflects the different ways in which believers show their faith. Work in RE often includes a time of reflection and opportunities for thoughtful response.
Older children are challenged to think more deeply in their RE work and debate important issues and challenging questions.
Work in RE allows children to learn of, understand and appreciate faith and beliefs beyond the Christian faith and has a positive impact upon school behaviour and achievement whilst allowing children to make their own faith choices.
We are supported by and collaborate with our local church community each half term to share our learning with local community members, parents and carers.
