The 'Water' Curriculum

Religious Education


Our R.E curriculum was created with the goal of ensuring that our students are well-prepared for life in our increasingly varied society. The curriculum allows pupils to learn about many religions and get an understanding of them in the world we live in. The teaching of R.E is vital for children to understand others beliefs and make connections between their own values.
