Religious Education

St Mary's Church



We use the new " Understanding Christianity" syllabus and in addition also learn about Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism.  Please see the overview below.  A creative approach, which includes drama, music, film clips, art, cookery and kinaesthetic reflective activities, 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 are also invited to answer searching questions from the children.
