Religious Education (RE)
RE lies at the very heart of the curriculum. It is driven by our deeply Christian vision and is intrinsic to the Christian ethos and the Christian values of St. John’s CE Primary School, based upon the teaching, love, and example of Jesus Christ.
St. John's CE Primary School, children, and their families can expect a RE curriculum that is rich and varied and both engaging and challenging, enabling learners to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith. Our syllabus incorporates a wide range of units centred on Christian teaching. Lessons include many aspects of the Christian faith including increasing the knowledge of the Bible; relating religious teaching to current society and understanding the significance of main events in the church’s calendar.
The RE curriculum at St. John’s gives the children an opportunity to explore Christianity in depth and to learn about Christianity as a diverse and living faith around the world starting locally, thinking nationally and then globally. While the majority of the curriculum is centred on Christianity, our syllabus also incorporates the teaching of the other main world faiths. RE at St. John’s also supports our children to develop a sense of fairness and justice for all peoples whatever their background and wherever they live.
Through teaching our core syllabus 'Questful RE’ we aim to equip our children with the skills and knowledge to hold their own, informed conversations about faith and religion.
