Vision for RE
Religious Education develops children’s skills of making decisions, understanding, and respecting different viewpoints, respecting cultural differences within our school community and the community outside of school. We are a diverse multi-faith school and offer a rich and varied curriculum. Through Philosophy 4 Children and Religious Education, children are developing their critical thinking as well as encouraging them to listen to others and recognise similarities and differences between each other. By visiting places of worship, having visitors, and using artefacts children can experience religions first-hand and understand that religions is part of the world we live in.
We teach RE in a non-biased way that is tolerant to all beliefs and faiths.
Subject Leader - Miss R Collins
I am Miss Collins, Year 2 Teacher and Religious Education Lead. I have led Religious Education at The Priory since September 2020 and I love being able to share my passion for Religious Education with our school. I studied Religious Education at St Mary’s University in London and I help with my local church and their Alpha Course.
I love visiting different places of worship around the world and learning about the religion through first-hand experience. I was fortunate to visit Africa in 2011 and visited a Christian service out there! As I am from the Wirral (near Liverpool) and have lived in London for 8 years, I have enjoyed learning more about how cultural our country is, and I hope to embed this within the Religious Education curriculum. I have tried to include lots of opportunities for children to visit places of worship as well as linking up with a charity called MAF. MAF works alongside underprivileged countries by helping them with their planes by flying food, medical supplies, and doctors to help people living in isolated areas. Throughout Key Stage 2, children will explore what the MAF does in more detail in their Religious Education lessons.
If you have any questions regarding the teaching of Religious Education at our school, then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
