The school follows the Leicestershire Literacy for All syllabus for RE which promotes understanding between all people.  RE is taught with the aim of equipping our pupils with the skills and understanding to live and prosper in a diverse and rapidly changing world.  Our syllabus allows all learners to share their experiences and to learn from one another about the religions and beliefs in our community.


The children learn about the major world religions and world views and are encouraged to think about life's big questions.  We enjoy close links with different places of worship who often come in to delivery assemblies. We also enjoy celebrating different religious events including Christmas, Easter, Diwali and Eid.
