RE and Worship

As a Voluntary Aided Anglican Church school, we follow the Understanding Christianity Scheme to teach Christianity. (National society/ teachers received key training from the Sheffield Diocese.) Pupils have opportunities to explore Bible stories and texts, think about lessons people learn from the Bible and making connections to their own experiences. For World Religions we use the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education for Barnsley. Pupils learn about the Islamic Faith, Jewish Faith, and Hindu Faith and have the opportunity to visit places of worship as part of this learning.

Our RE teaching promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. Our teaching enables pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, attitudes, practices and rituals. They will also develop their own beliefs and values.

Regular collective worship with our Canon of St Peters supports a deeper understanding of the liturgical year and Bible stories. Pupils have the opportunity to visit many different places of worship and we have close links with the Church community for Harvest, Christmas, Easter and the Year 6 Goodbye Service
