St Bartholomew’s C of E Primary School is extremely lucky to have such a diverse culture within the school. Through the teachings of RE, we want every child to understand the different religious beliefs held by their peers within school. In doing so, we want all children to leave us knowing how important understanding is to living a fulfilled and happy life. 

As RE is a central subject in our curriculum, we aim to develop children’s curiosity about different beliefs and in doing so, develop their own cultural, spiritual, moral and social beliefs. 

We aim to enable learners to identify why religious beliefs influence people’s behaviours, allowing them to be positive towards people who hold a different belief to their own. This in turn will let pupil’s be able to become more aware of their own beliefs and values, allowing them to choose their own spiritual and cultural journey.
