Religious Education

At Sherwood Primary School, we take an enquiry-based approach to Religious Education, with each unit of work focused around a key question. Children develop their knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, practises and traditions through the exploration of sacred texts and religious stories, handling special artefacts and visiting places of worship. Christianity is taught in each year group, with one other religion taught alongside this. These religions include Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism and Buddhism.

Through our Religious Education lessons, we focus on critical thinking skills, on personal reflection into the children’s own thoughts and feelings, on growing subject knowledge and nurturing spiritual development. Our enquiry-based curriculum enables pupils to respond to a range of important questions related to spiritual development and the meaning and purpose of life.

At Sherwood Primary School, Religious Education plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. Our Religious Education curriculum is carefully planned to support the promotion of British Values; Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
