Grosvenor Park Primary School

Religious Education


At Grosvenor Park Primary School we intend to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding within Religious Education. It is our intent for children to know more about world religions and understand how these religions have developed over time and shaped the past and present. Throughout our RE Curriculum, we want our children to learn from and about religion so they can understand the world around them, appreciate the way that religious belief shapes life and behaviours, develop the ability to make considered choices and judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.


The aim of our RE Curriculum is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.


We are committed to inspiring children to want to know more about world beliefs, cultures and religions. We engage children by providing opportunities to handle religious artefacts and discuss primary and secondary sources of wisdom to develop the skills of inquisitiveness, questioning and interpretation. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions to find out more about religious practices and beliefs and religious vocabulary will play an integral part in developing children’s understanding of religion.


Underpinning all of this we aim to teach the Fundamental British Values (defined by our school) by developing:


  • Active learners who challenge themselves to make decisions as they learn and to move their learning on, making use of the active strategies they have been taught.  
  • Adaptable learners who can change what they are doing when something is not working in the moment.
  • Children who are adventurous and willing to take risks in their learning and try new things to support themselves and others along the way.
  • Cooperative learners who are able to ask and answer questions considering other people’s views at all times.
  • Curiosity in children, developing a culture where children always want to find out more.
  • Expressive children who can show their learning in lots of different ways during lessons.
  • Resilient learners who are able to understand religious concepts and the viewpoints of different religions around the world.
  • Learners who are respectful about the lives of significant religious figures and recognise how the lives of these individuals have shaped cultures in the wider world who promote equality and celebrate our differences within society.
