RE Curriculum




RE at Farnborough aims to develop the pupil’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of the multicultural society in which we live. The teaching of RE gives all our pupils the opportunity to understand their place in the world and how a diverse collection of cultures coming together can have positive impact on the world in which we live as well as our individual communities.

RE must be provided for all pupils in state funded schools in England. This is a legal requirement and is also a necessary part of a ‘broad and balanced curriculum’ offering children a diverse and inclusive learning opportunities that celebrate all.



Our curriculum inspires our children to be inquisitive about the world around them and encourages them to make links throughout their learning.  Our RE lessons allows pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity as well as other principal religions, religious traditions, and world views.  All pupils have the opportunity to be immersed in a religion or cultural traditions through active learning experiences throughout their time at Farnborough helping to prepare them for their learning beyond Farnborough.


Our curriculum aims to contribute to pupils’ personal development and well-being through promoting mutual

respect and tolerance both within our school community but also in our wider community. The children have opportunities for personal reflection and deepening their understanding of the significance of religion in both their lives  and the lives of others.


We believe exploring the concepts of religion and belief and their roles in the spiritual, moral and cultural lives of

 people in our diverse society helps the children to develop a moral awareness and social understanding. Our RE curriculum inspires children to become active learners, confident and unique individuals who are responsible citizens. It gives them knowledge and understanding to strengthen their capacity for making moral judgements as well as questioning the world around them.

The teaching of RE in primary schools across England is internationally admired for its concept of ‘learning from religion.’ At Farnborough we believe RE allows children and young people to build their identity and understand their culture and the culture of others. This can only breed a culture of tolerance and support them in building a moral framework, which is so important, as they grow and develop into active and effective members of our community.
