Religious Education

Religious education at St Peter’s explores how individuals and communities make meaning and sense of their lives through the major religions of the world.

It enables pupils to know about, understand and respond to the important and ultimate questions of life. Religious education is taught in such a way that it inspires pupils to explore, develop and affirm their own faith and values and have respect for the faith, beliefs and values of others.

The Oxfordshire Agreed Syllabus reflects the requirements in the Education Acts of 1996, 1998 and 2002. These are that an agreed syllabus must reflect that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain. We have worked alongside our RE advisor to tailor the locally agreed syllabus to our specific context. 

St Peter's Curriculum Overview  


When teaching R.E at St Peter's, we aim to allow pupils time and space to explore big ideas and concepts and their own responses to it. We strive to ensure meaningful and contextual learning, with concepts and big ideas building over time and being revisited often to develop deep learning or core knowledge. Thoughts and ideas are largely expressed through artwork, drama, spoken activities and real life projects. R.E is taught using videos, artefacts, visitors and experiences. This also allows for the development of 'ways of knowing' in our RE curriculum.

 Their biblical literacy is amazing, the quality of teaching and learning in RE is very good.
