Religious Education

Our broad, inspiring and ambitious curriculum is designed to develop confident, happy and curious individuals who flourish through perseverance and a love of learning. This reflects our vision of ‘where we all belong, believe in ourselves and others, and build for our future.’ 


At Cheddon Fitzpaine Church School, RE is underpinned with three elements which run through all our learnings. Our Christianity units build on children's prior learning and aim to make sense of the text, understand the impact and make connections through core Christian concepts, which tell the 'salvation narrative' (big story) of the Bible. Our Understanding Christianity resource is designed to support and develop children's understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.  Our RE curriculum is supplemented with wider world views and other world religions to allow for a deepening level of understanding and tolerance of one another.  


  • All children will be provided a context for reflection and discussion. 

  • Children will have a greater understanding of the world cultures, religious and non-religious viewpoints, that make human beings unique.  

  • To ensure that pupils have a deep-rooted understanding of Christianity, which reflects our school's Christian distinctiveness. 

  • To ensure that children develop respect for themselves and others within their local area, within Britain and the wider world. 

  • Children consider how their believes and values impact their lives.  

  • To ensure that children build on their knowledge of Christianity and wider world religions, all classes will review previous learning, discussing where their learning fits in with the bigger picture.
