Religious Education


At St Nicholas C of E Primary School, the Religious Education curriculum is underpinned by our school vision: Dream Big Shine Bright. Our vision is rooted in the Bible, “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16.

We develop learners that feel inspired and motivated to ‘shine bright’ in God’s world making positive contributions to their immediate, local and global community. Our aim is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address. Children have the opportunity to respond creatively and in a range of ways to the key questions posed and big ideas explored. All year groups learn about Christianity as well as a range of other world faiths with a focus on Hinduism, Islam and Judaism. Non-religious worldviews such as Humanism are also explored.

Our Religious Education develops respectful and reflective learners. We recognise and celebrate the role RE plays in nurturing Christian and British values in our children and staff. Pupils will know about and understand Christianity as a living world faith- exploring core theological concepts and engaging with biblical texts. Our children engage in discussion about religion and worldviews with a maturity and respect that we are proud of.


What our children say about Religious Education:


"It is good to learn about different religions and how different people talk to God."


"I really like RE because you can choose to draw and write. If you struggle with writing then you can draw, or it could be the other way around."


"It is fun to learn about creation."
