Religious Education at Hillmorton Primary School
Aims and Objectives
Religious Education is an important element in the broad and balanced curriculum we aim to provide at Hillmorton Primary School. Through our RE curriculum, we provide opportunities to develop children’s knowledge and understanding of world religions and reflect on the challenging questions it provokes.
The RE curriculum forms an important part of our school’s spiritual, moral and social teaching. Our school RE curriculum is based on the Warwickshire Local Authority SACRE agreed syllabus from EYFS to upper KS2. The Education Act 1996 states that an agreed syllabus must reflect the fact that the religious tradition in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whist taking account of the teachings and practices of the other principals religious represented in Great Britain. According to the Education Act 1996 and the School Standards and Framework Act 1988 parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part or Religious Education lessons.
