Religious Education

St Mary's Church



We use the Rochester Diocesan Syllabus which focuses on Christianity in Key Stage One so that the children understand the core beliefs before exploring other faiths. Key Stage Two study Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism.  A creative approach which includes, drama, music, film clips, art, cookery and kinaesthetic reflective activities which inspires and engages the children.

As well as visiting  St Mary’s church frequently, (not just for weekly acts of worship but for investigations too), all children will have had the opportunity to experience a city church, a mosque, a Gurdwara  and  a synagogue by the time they leave the school. Visitors, including our rector, are also invited to answer searching questions from the children.
