Religious Education

Holy Trinity CE (C) Primary School believes that religious education should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life and ensuring they are a well-rounded member of our community. We are a Church of England (CofE) School and bear in mind that the British Isles is a multi-cultural nation which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population. As a result, Christianity is the main religion we focus our learning on with the appropriate weighting within the religious education curriculum of other faiths in our society and the framework of learning.

Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others is promoted as part of our programme. The school has adopted Understanding Christianity (from Lichfield Diocese CofE) and Staffordshire’s Agreed RE Syllabus.

Parents have the right to withdraw children from religious lessons and daily worship in collective worship/assemblies but it must be understood that such activities make a contribution to cross-curricular objectives pursued during the course of the school week. 

Please use your child's year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term and the school’s rolling long term planning below.
