Religious Education

Click here to view our RE Curriculum Overview      

During religious education (RE) lessons children are encouraged to reflect on different beliefs and values, relating them to their own world and experiences. Pupils learn about world religions and customs within them, identifying similarities and differences between them and learning how members of that religion worship and celebrate.

Pupils at Conway are encouraged to ask and explore right and wrong, being part of a community, the origins of humanity and what happens after we die. They learn how different religious groups approach this and learn to respect others and their beliefs.

We follow The Royal Borough of Greenwich Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education which places importance on the belief that in the Primary phase pupils are able to find out more about their own faith and that of others around them.

This syllabus is constructed so that in Key Stage 1 pupils will find out about Christianity and three other major faiths and in Key Stage 2 they will study Christianity and all five other main faiths.
