The school follows the outline of skills and learning expectations laid down in the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus for RE. We are committed to recognising and celebrating differences and diversity, and use the ‘Discovery RE’ program to support our teaching. This enquiry based approach makes RE exciting and engaging whilst developing children’s understanding of world faiths and their associated traditions and cultures. Each module also offers opportunities for the development of SMSC awareness and understanding of British values by linking children’s critical thinking skills alongside their knowledge of and empathy with people of different faiths.

As part of a whole school approach, it develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

SRE is taught within the PSHE programme; biological aspects of SRE are taught within the science curriculum and some moral aspects are taught within RE and PATHS sessions.
