Religious Education

Religious Education is a highly valued academic subject in its own right that enables understanding of how religion and beliefs affect our lives. RE also enables pupils to strengthen their understanding of the school vision and values. 

The importance placed on the development of the whole child spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually is reflected in the RE curriculum. The school provides an RE curriculum that is rich and varied and studies a range of world religions and worldviews. 

Our aim is to provide a wide range of opportunities for learners to understand and to make links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of the range of faiths studied. 

As a Voluntary Controlled school, we follow the Cumbria Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education

 At Vicarage Park, the faiths taught in RE are:

  •  EY / KS1: Christianity and Islam
  •  KS2: Christianity, Islam and Hinduism

 

Please see the full RE policy for more details.
