Church of England First School and Nursery

"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12



Through the provision of high quality RE reflecting the Church of England Statement of Entitlement, our goal is to ensure all pupils are given a safe space in which 'broad minds and open hearts' are cultivated and which enables all children to to flourish.  Our RE curriculum is based on our values of 'Love, Hope and Joy' and is underpinned by our Christian vision: "Together We Grow, Together We Give". 


RE reflects the distinctive quality of our Church Aided status. Our aim is that the children develop their understanding of Christian beliefs and traditions, as well as put them into practice on a daily basis.


We recognise that RE can contribute to a child’s spiritual development, foster a sense of awe and wonder, provoke challenging questions about God and encourage concern and sensitivity towards others. We also aim to develop respect and understanding towards those from other faiths and cultures.


The syllabus has breadth and balance ensuring that Christianity is studied at each key stage and that children have the opportunity to learn about another principle world religion. We also include material from other worldviews as appropriate to the curriculum or context.


"RE is the opposite of indoctrination: the most broad minded and open hearted ways of looking at the world we can make it." Lat Blaylock, RE Today

We recognise the importance of creativity in our approach to RE learning and teaching as we believe that creativity can lead to thoughtfulness and both can enable spiritual growth or development.
