RE at All Saints

Religious Education is a vital and core aspect of our children’s education.  It provides valuable opportunities and strategies to develop a huge range of skills including the ability to reflect, analyse, discuss, debate and empathise with others.  These transferable skills encourage a depth of understanding about significant events, beliefs and enable us to understand one another. Curriculum Visions 2


RE is Important because ….

 "Religious education in a Church school should enable every child to flourish and live life in all its fullness. (John 10:10). It will help educate for dignity and respect encouraging all to live well together (The Church of England Education Office - Religious Education in Church of England Schools, A Statement of Entitlement Feb 2019)

Such an approach is offered through a commitment to generous hospitality, being true to our underpinning faith, but with a deep respect for the integrity of other religious traditions (and world views) and for the religious freedom of each person.’”

(The Church of England Education office, Church of England Vision for Education:Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good. 2016)
