Religious Education

At St Stephen’s Infants School, we want all children, staff, parents and carers to have a voice and feel they are valued members of our community. At St Stephen’s we are a welcoming and inclusive infant school. RE prepares the children to become happy, caring and responsible members of our school community by exploring big questions about life, finding out what people believe and celebrating difference. Children can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living in a supportive learning environment.

 

Our RE curriculum ensures that all children:

  • Know about and understand a range of religions and world views.
  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and world views.
  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and world views.
