Religious Education


"FaitH is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe." ST augustine.


RE banner 3


RE is about helping children and young people hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religion and belief. RE asks challenging questions about the meaning of life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops students’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, Islam, other religious traditions, and other world views that offer answers to these challenging questions. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. It enhances students’ awareness and understanding of religions and beliefs, teachings, practices and forms of expression, as well as of the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.

RE encourages students to learn from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions, while exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning. It challenges students to reflect on, consider, analyse, interpret and evaluate issues of truth, belief, faith and ethics and to communicate their responses.

RE encourages students to develop their sense of identity and belonging. It enables them to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society and global community.

KS4 Assessment

KS2 paper2



Follows the Masters of Recall programme. All students are given a Masters of Recall booklet according to their year group, these booklets contain the Knowledge Organisers for the topics they will be studying in Religious Education.

Students are set homework via assignments on Teams. Students are given clear instructions which part of the Knowledge Organiser they need to learn using one of the revision strategies at the front of the Masters of Recall booklet.

When the homework is due in class, students are expected to show the classroom teacher their completed revision strategy and then they will complete ten multiple choice questions based on the knowledge learnt.



At GCSE, students are given a range of different homework activities which centre around crucial knowledge.

These include Total REcall, Seneca and Microsoft Forms (multiple choice questions). These homework’s coincide with the crucial knowledge being taught in the lessons. As students move towards key assessment points and the GCSE exams, homework will also include answering exam questions from sections of previous exam papers.



We use artefacts to help bring religion alive. Here are some Hinduism artefacts to help students understand the major deities.


Here are some examples of Y7 work. RE allows students to reflect upon their spiritual and human experiences in a creative way. Here are some ideas about God.

Humanities Prefect

Finlay BHi, my name is Finlay, and I am the Humanities prefect. I applied for this role as I believe these 3 subjects within the humanities are some of the most interesting and unique courses within the school. The subjects that are in the humanities are History, Geography and Religious Ed. All of which are very important and amazing to learn about as you further your education in the school. I personally enjoy these subjects and believe everyone within the school should share my passion for them as they teach you about the world we live in and peoples outlooks and different cultures within it. I find this very fascinating which led me to pick both History and Geography for my options to continue learning about the subjects alongside Religious Ed.  

My role as prefect for these subjects is to provide a platform for students who find these lessons interesting and to help them further deepen their understanding of the subject areas. Another aspect of my role is to support and guide students who may find these 3 subjects challenging. Above all else my role is to provide support and encouragement to all students within the academy.
