Our intention for Griffins when learning RE at Race Leys Junior School is to learn from and about religion, so that they can understand the world around them. We help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions represented in Great Britain. Throughout our RE lessons, we encourage Griffins to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. We include and promote British Values, ensuring that Griffins are aware of their rights and responsibilities as UK citizens.


We implement the Coventry and Warwickshire agreed syllabus for Religious Education as the basis for our curriculum. Religious Education is generally taught on a weekly basis, but is sometimes delivered through a class topic or as a whole-school RE day. Teachers may develop their own key questions linked to the themes in the syllabus, allowing links with other subject areas where appropriate. All religions and their communities are treated with respect and sensitivity. We value the links which are made between home, school and a faith community. Visits to places of worship, and visitors representing different religions provide a variety of first-hand experiences for our children, to spark their interest and relate new learning to their own experience.

The impact of our learning in RE is that through this, Griffins are able to make links between their own lives and those of other in their community and the wider world. They develop an understanding of other cultures and way of life. As a result, children show high levels of self-awareness and model respect and empathy for others.
