Religious Education


Every state funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based, and which:

* Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental, and physical development of pupils; and

* Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


Religious Education Intent 


Our children will engage with and study aspects of what it means to live life in the Christian traditions and in Hindu traditions. (Living Difference IV The agreed Syllabus for Hampshire)

Through the cycle of Enquiry children will have the opportunity to talk about what is important to them and others, valuing themselves, reflecting on their own feelings and experiences and developing a sense of belonging.

  • Our children will develop a growing understanding of World Religions.


  • Our children will explore key concepts through RE themes.


  • Our children’s will retain a growing vocabulary related to key concepts and World Religions.


  • Children will develop a sense of awe and wonder through first hand experiences.


  • Children will foster a sense of belonging; seeing themselves as part of their community and wider world.


Religious Education helps children to build their knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live and deepen their sense of identity and belonging within their community and the wider world.  At Wootey Infant School our Core Values of Happiness, Creativity and Respect are integral to our RE curriculum. The carefully planned concept based, creative curriculum gives the children the opportunities and experiences to develop curious, respectful and empathetic and allows them to question and make reflections about the world and their own beliefs, values and experiences.

The teaching of RE through first-hand experiences and varied teaching styles enables all to access the curriculum and develop important life skills.  We want children to foster an understanding of diversity and equality, within the school, local community and wider world.
