Religious Education

Through our R.E. lessons we aim to promote understanding of, and interest in, the major world faiths, in accordance with the North Yorkshire Syllabus for Religious Education. As well as acquiring this knowledge and understanding, children are encouraged to pose questions for themselves and to acquire the skills to research their own answers.



 Links across the curriculum are made wherever possible, so that learning can be enhanced through, for example, DT(model-making), ICT(research and presentation), PE (dance) or Literacy( drama, story-telling, writing.) In addition, as well as learning in the classroom, we broaden the children’s experience through visits to places of worship and by faith visitors coming into school. We regularly take on a faith as a whole- school topic, so that year groups can learn from one another in a context that they all understand.

We celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter with visits to our local church St James’ or to Selby Abbey.

As a Rights Respecting school, we introduce the children to the articles within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child that refer to religious belief and practice, and encourage them to understand and promote these amongst themselves and in the wider community. Article 14 states that every child has the right to think and believe what they want and to practise their religion. Article 30 maintains the right of every child to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family.
