RE in our school

RE is an important part of the curriculum in our school. Each class, from Year 1 to Year 6 has an hour of RE each week, as well as being a part of our daily collective worship. We study five of the six major world religions; Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism, and we also learn about non-religious world views, in particular Humanism.

Being a local authority school, we follow the Cheshire West agreed syllabus, and use the optional scheme of work provided by CWAC to support our planning. For more information about our RE lessons, you can speak to your child's class teacher (in the first instance) or Mrs Harland, who is the Year 5 class teacher, but also our RE lead teacher.

If you have any questions about what your child is covering in RE lessons, then please speak to their class teacher. They will be able to talk to you about the content of the lessons, and show you any resources.

Our RE curriculum overview, along with other documents, can be found at the bottom of this page.

Our Links with St. James' Church, Ince

Our school works closely with St. James' Church in Ince. We are very lucky that volunteers from our church come into school to deliver Open the Book Assemblies - assemblies which focus on retelling the stories of the Bible.

Further information about St. James' such as the history of the church and current service times can be found by clicking here

Comments from our parents & pupils

Mrs Hodgson -  I took Beth to the hospital at 1.30 and she grumbled she was missing the practice of the play. But then she gasped in horror and said "oh no I'm missing R.E and that's about God and Jesus, I need to know these things mum"

"I really like RE. It's the time I get to really think."

"RE helps you to understand the world more. You know why people wear different clothes and say different things."

"It's learning about people."
