Religious Education

Through religious education, children will learn about different religions and their traditions, practices and beliefs.

We aim to deliver an RE curriculum that is designed to allow all pupils to learn about and from religion in local, national and worldwide contexts, so they develop respect and tolerance for others and appreciate the way religious beliefs influence behaviours and actions. Children are given opportunities to discover, explore and consider many different answers to questions about human identity, meaning and value.

Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development – we believe it is important to understand the part religion plays in our societies, and will continually draw links between religions and the way we live our own lives.

Through an enquiry-based approach, we will equip children with the ability to investigate big questions appropriately, and give them the opportunity to do so, as this is a skill that will be required in the diverse, ever-changing world around them.

At Sutton Academy, we follow the Herefordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2020-2025.

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their child from collective worship assemblies and/or Religious Education lessons. Parents who wish to do so should discuss the matter with the Executive Head teachers.
