At St Mary’s we believe that Religious Education (RE) must be varied, interesting, relevant, stimulating and challenging. We have endeavoured to organise an exciting and challenging scheme of work in RE to offer a range of teaching and learning strategies.
Based upon topics developed by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education, our scheme of work is predominately Christian. We aim to ensure that children can learn about Jesus’ life and teaching, explore Old and New Testament bible stories and characters, learn about our local church; its functions and traditions, and appreciate and embrace Christian values.
Children also learn about other world religions: Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism, and are given the opportunity to visit these places of worship.

Our Scheme of Work in RE has been developed to achieve these aims. By following this scheme of work we aim to ensure continuity and progression in RE throughout the whole school.
