RE (Religious Education)

Vision Statement:

As a Christian faith school, we are committed to providing age-related Religious Education (RE) to every child from Foundation Stage to Year Six which focusses on children developing their understanding of the practice and traditions of Christianity, as well as other Faiths and World Views. Alongside promoting our Christian Values, we recognise the importance of developing the individual culturally, spiritually, morally, and socially. We hope that through experiencing a balanced RE programme of study, in the context of our wider curriculum, our children will explore and foster their own opinions, beliefs and attitudes- whilst sensitively respecting the opinions of others- which will guide them in the future.

Extra Opportunities:

As our school has very strong links with our local Church, we are very pleased to hold our annual KS1 Christmas production, Carol Service and Easter Service at St Mary’s. Reverend Anna and Lay Reader Janys Cliff lead Collective Worship in school very regularly.



Whenever we can, we try to bring our classroom learning to life by offering visits to places of worship such as St Mary’s Church, Selby Abbey and York Minster. We have also hosted ‘World Beliefs Day’, which involved our children working with visitors from a range of belief systems including: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Humanism.


Planning and Coverage:

Religious Education is taught weekly, using units from Understanding Christianity and the North Yorkshire County Council Agreed Syllabus 2019-2024. As a church school, RE is one of our core areas of learning and our long term plan (LTP) can be found at the link below as well as specific detail for your child’s year group.
