Religious Education

Religious Education gives children an insight into the world they live in by developing their own beliefs and providing them with an understanding of the beliefs of other cultures and religions.  It enables children to respond to important spiritual, moral, cultural and social questions.


Our scheme follows the Wokingham Agreed Syllabus.  In each year group children study Christianity and also one of the major world faiths:


  • Year 3 - Hinduism
  • Year 4 - Sikhism
  • Year 5 - Judaism
  • Year 6 - Islam


Whilst the schools feels that RE is beneficial for all pupils, it recognises the right of parents to withdraw their children from RE in its entirety or in part.  Parents should at first discuss the matter with the Headteacher and then arrangements can be made.
