Religious Education

As a Church school we believe it is important to introduce children to the religious and spiritual dimensions of life.  Religious Education makes an unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and supports wider community cohesion.  Religious Education is taught in accordance with the South Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus which develops children’s knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions.  Within lessons, children are encouraged to explore their own beliefs and to develop an understanding and respect for beliefs and faiths different from their own, building their sense of identity and belonging and promoting their responsibilities to themselves and others.
