Religious Education

At Sandown Primary School we follow the East Sussex Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.  Our aim is to ensure that our children develop a good understanding of other people’s beliefs, faiths and religions.  We learn about Christianity and other religions including Islam, Hinduism and Judaism.

Through Religious Education lessons we encourage the children to develop an understanding and respect for others and themselves.

The Religious Education Syllabus is divided into two sections:

AT1 -Learning About Religion and Belief
This includes learning about beliefs, ways of life and forms of expression.

AT2 - Learning From Religion and Belief
This includes thinking about identity and belonging.

Lessons are taught in exciting and engaging ways, often using role play and exploring religious artefacts.  We visit the local church and encourage members of the wider community to come in and talk about their religious beliefs.
