Longparish Church of England Primary School (Aided)

Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) is a subject we must teach by law. The National Society of the Church of England (SIAMs) inspect RE approximately every four years .

Our RE curriculum is based on the document 'Understanding Christianity' - written for the National Society and 'Living Difference' - from the diocese of Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester. Thse two documents give us dance and ideas about how to teach RE.

We encourage all children to participate in RE as we want all children to fully understand all religions and appreciate the importance of faith in people's lives and the fundamental concepts that most world religions hold dear.

We teach the 4 major world religions;-

Christianity, Islam,  Hinduism and Judaism.

If you would prefer your child not to learn about these religions, you can withdraw your children from RE lessons. You will need to put your request in writing to the head teacher.
