Religious Education

Werrington Primary School

Religious Education

Religious Education is one of the foundation subjects within the National Curriculum. Children are taught key aspects of the five main world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Islam.

Where possible we try to explore religion through a practical approach using artefacts, interactive ICT programmes, visitors and trips to places of worship e.g. the Church of St John the Baptist, Werrington and the mosque. 

We study holy writings, significant people, places and ways of worship and important festivals and ceremonies such as marriage and baptism.

Religious Education is a statutory subject.  Parents may, however, withdraw their child from religious education. Parents should put such requests in writing.
