Religious Education & Worship

The Religious Education of our pupils is a valued subject in our distinctive church school. Equally the practice and teaching of the Christian faith is central to all that we do. Our faith is not just something added on to everything else we do as a school, but runs through all of our learning.  Dedicated curriculum time is allocated across all key stages to the teaching of this subject and RE teaching is of the highest standard, reflecting its significance and importance within our school.

We believe that our children need to learn about and understand the beliefs and practices of the major religions and worldviews, which not only shape their history and culture but which guide their own development. We want to equip our children for the modern world and ensure they are confident in their own beliefs and values and so can respect the religious and cultural differences of others, and make a positive contribution to a society that values and celebrates diversity in all its form. Teaching is planned and delivered using the Blackburn Diocesan scheme of work.

For details about specific year group coverage, see the curriculum map for each year group, found on the class pages of our website.
