Religious Education

We aim to engage pupils with questions arising from the study of religion and beliefs so as to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  We are embedding the new Gloucestershire RE syllabus throughout our RE lessons and using the Understanding Christianity materials to support our work on the Christian faith.
