Learning about, understanding and having respect for the different religions in our world is a valuable part of our school curriculum.  Religious Education has two dimensions – learning about and learning from.  Learning about can be considered as looking through a window – learning from what we see, hear and experience.  Learning from is more like a mirror – learning that encourages children to ask questions about what is this reflecting to me and how can I respond.

The school follows the Cambridgeshire Syllabus for RE which contains units about the major religions represented in our country. Each unit begins with a key question to provide enquiry based  learning. We draw on a range of resources including visitors who give children a greater insight into the religion they follow. 

Parents retain the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education if they so wish but this needs to be by prior arrangement with the Headteacher.  Anyone wishing to do this would be invited to have an open discussion with the Headteacher at a convenient time to both parties.
