Caring for Pupils, Promoting Success


Religious Education (RE)

We follow the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Swindon. It has been created for Swindon SARCE and approved by Swindon Council. We aim to develop the value and purpose of RE by developing children’s understanding of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and other religions represented in Great Britain.


The curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils:

* Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews

* Express ideas and insights about nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews

* Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.


We use a variety of activities, for example visiting places of worship, meeting people of different faiths, handling religious objects, telling stories, producing artwork, dancing, discussions and drama.


If you would like to know more about RE teaching, please ask. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE lessons if they wish.
