At Snaresbrook Primary School, it is our intent that we give pupils the tools to combat prejudice, preparing them for their lives in the our modern world. Our Religious Education curriculum reflects this intent. We follow the recently updated Redbridge Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) 2021. The aim of the Redbridge SACRE has been to produce a syllabus that will inspire and equip the children and young people in Redbridge schools, and through the teaching of the syllabus our aim is that the children develop respect for, and understanding of, the different communities in this school and the wider community that they are part of.  Our RE teaching is designed to prepare children for living in and sharing in an inclusive community by teaching them how to be sensitive to the issues of the day: race, religion, gender, equality and culture. 

How is RE implemented?

In the Early Years and Foundation Stage, Religious Education is taught throughout the year as part of one of the four specific areas of learning: 'Understanding of the World'. 

In Key Stages 1 and 2, RE is taught through weekly, discrete lessons which encompass religious enquiry questions, as well as teaching the beliefs of world religions.

Through daily collective worship and celebrations of festivals of faith, children learn about differences and similarities between religions. Themes for daily collective worship include respect, responsibility, resilience, honesty and compassion.

Beyond the National Curriculum

We are always looking for opportunities to further develop the children's understanding in History in school by organising trips, visitors and workshops. Please see the enriching experiences that we have taken part in. 

Christmas Assembly

We were lucky to have a visit from the Christian Education Project this week, they did two assemblies for all the children.

The children were excellent and asked lots of great questions at the end.

A huge thank you to the Christian Education Project for coming into Snaresbrook.
