RE at St Peter's


Religious Education is an integral part of our St Peter’s curriculum and one of our core subjects. As a voluntary aided school, we follow the RE Curriculum recommended by Chester Diocese - see link below. Each week we spend time discussing, responding and reflecting individually and as classes. Our lessons are taught in a variety of ways which allow for a creative approach but also offers opportunities for quieter, reflective work to take place.  We focus on and revisit concepts across the years (e.g. God, Church, Resurrection etc) that allow us to deepen understanding at an age appropriate level. Each year group also spends time considering another world faith and making and links between that faith and their own.

At St. Peter’s we encourage challenging questions about beliefs about God. We enhance pupils’ awareness of religion and beliefs, teachings, practices and forms of expression, as well as of the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.

Pupils learn from religions, beliefs, values and traditions, while exploring and reflecting on their own beliefs and questions of meaning. We encourage pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging with the aim of developing children who flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a global community.
