Religious Education (R.E.) is a core subject at St Margaret’s Church of England Primary School and is at the centre of our ethos. We believe R.E. plays an important role in preparing pupils for lifelong learning and adult life; we endeavour to help the children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens who understand the Christian values and who value truth and diversity and are able to make positive moral judgements.
As a school we use the resource ‘Understanding Christianity’ which has been developed by ‘The Church of England Education Project’. This resource aims “to help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it” (The Church of England Education Office, 2016). We also use resources developed by Diocese of Guildford to support our teaching of different faiths and beliefs.
