"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Religious Education (RE)

Religious education has an important role along with all other curriculum areas, particularly PSHE and British Values, in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils.  We aim to deliver an RE curriculum that develops children's knowledge and understanding of different beliefs and world views, enabling them to understand and value all beliefs, both in their local community and in the wider world. Our RE curriculum follows the guidelines of the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE 2020-2025.


"The principal aim of religious education is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living"

Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE 2020-2025


This Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (RE) has been created for Worcestershire SACRE and approved by Worcestershire County Council. It provides a syllabus for Religious Education for Worcestershire schools.


Since 1944, all schools have been required to teach RE to all pupils on roll (with the exception that parents have the right to withdraw their children from the subject). Religious Education remains part of the basic curriculum for all pupils.
