Subject Intent

At Shenley Primary School, we aim to ensure that all pupils develop knowledge and understanding of other world religions and their impact, whilst exploring personal and critical responses. We encourage pupils to reflect on the religious make-up of our school by following eight key areas of religion. RE aims to enable pupils to become religiously and theologically literate so they can engage in life in an increasingly diverse society. Our curriculum assists children in gaining shared human understanding, developing personal identity and searching for meaning in the context of evaluating different viewpoints. By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.


We follow The Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus, which aims to enable schools to achieve high quality Religious Education for all. By the end of Year 6, all pupils will have experienced and had access to learning of the six main world religions. These are taught through comparative study and hands on experiences by exploring artefacts, and listening and engaging with religious leaders who visit. RE is taught as a block within our creative curriculum; we find this brings out the best questioning and thoughts from our pupils, developing richer depth to what they are learning.
