Smallwood Primary School and
Language Unit


In Religious Education, children learn about the origins and beliefs of the main world religions, exploring in the process how people of different faiths worship.

Our approach to RE encompasses learning about religion as well as learning from religion. 

In KS1 the children begin to compare and contrast their own belief systems with those they are studying and so gain a wider understanding of the world.  In KS2 they begin to explore the main religions in depth as well as contemplating sophisticated social and religious concepts, raising and discussing some of the big questions of life.  Through our R.E. studies we aim to widen the children’s perspective on the world and to prepare them to engage positively with people of all faiths.
