Christ Church C of E Primary

Religious Education at Christ Church

 Religious Education is a core subject at Christ Church. This page illustrates how we approach RE and Collective Worship across the School.

The School has a daily Act of Worship giving staff and children the opportunity to reflect and speak to God. All forms of Collective Worship have an underlying Christian theme although their focus may be about world events or  social dilemmas. Bible stories are told, along with stories from other religions and cultures.  The link between the School and Parish Church is very important to us. Services are held at Christ Church celebrating the main Christian festivals and learners have a bi-weekly Collective Worship in the Church also.  Mother Ariadne, who is the Vicar of Christ Church is also the Vice-Chair of the School’s Governing Body. She is a regular visitor to our School.

 Learners are encouraged to follow the basic moral code of the Christian Church.This is reinforced by our use of Value Words. The children are encouraged to put these values into practise.  Whilst many lessons will have a Christian theme, they will learn about the beliefs and practices of the major world religions.  Please find our Religious Education and Collective Worship Policies below:
