ReptonPrimary School



Repton Primary School follows the Derbyshire and Derby City Agreed Syllabus for RE. 


Principal Aim for Children:

RE will allow our children to explore the big questions about life, in order to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live.  They can then use this to make sense of religions and worldviews, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.  The different things they believe and the different ideas they have is what makes our World the beautiful place it is. 

Our RE curriculum allows children to discover and gain an insight into religions within the world that we live. 


Intent - What do we intend children to learn through RE?

The Aims of RE:

  1. Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews,
  2. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews,
  3. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.

Religious Education contributes dynamically to our children's education by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, people’s belief in God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be Human.  

Early Years will focus on a variety of religions,

Key Stage 1 will focus on Christianity, Islam and Judaism,

Year 3 and 4 will focus on Christianity, Islam and Hinduism,

Year 5 will focus on Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism and

Year 6 will focus on Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Humanism.


It is the intent of Repton Primary School that Religious Education promotes an enquiry based approach through the implementation of the above mentioned scheme of work which covers both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two and is used to contribute to the learning experiences of the children within the Early Years Foundation Stage as well.
