‘Learning to Succeed’

Religious Education

At Homerswood Primary School we follow the Hertfordshire Scheme of Work for Religious Education. This has been developed to accompany the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.

It requires that pupils learn about different religions.

At Homerswood we think that it is important to encourage pupils to reflect on their own beliefs and values whilst acknowledging that others may hold beliefs different from their own.

Pupils learn about Christianity in every year group. Each year group also focus on a different religion. These  include Sikhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism.

The pupils learn to describe the key aspects of religions and traditions, learn about places of religious importance and discover how religious festivals, events and stories are observed within religious communities.

Where  possible, we visit different places of worship or invite visitors to the school.
