Religious Education (R.E.)
“Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
RE is taught with reference to the Suffolk County Council agreed syllabus 2012 and through the Emanuel 2020 Project as our scheme of work for Christianity and other major world faiths. Our close links with local churches, enables the RE curriculum to be relevant, real and broad for our children enabling them to develop understanding of Christianity as the “heritage religion” of the country and the one that most influences our school and community life. We teach children to have mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs (Islam, Hinduism and Judaism as examples) and for those without faith. We aim to provide an opportunity to explore major world religions outside the children’s experience, in order to extend their knowledge and understanding.
