Religious Education

All non-faith community, Academy, foundation and voluntary aided schools in Cornwall (schools without a religious character) must provide Religious Education (RE) that meets the requirements of the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.



The principal aim of religious education is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.

RE teaching is based on the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus 2020.and we follow the scheme Jigsaw RE.

We develop children’s knowledge and understanding of some of the major world faiths by exploring the beliefs, values and traditions of Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism.  R.E. is delivered in discrete lessons as well as being linked with other subjects as appropriate. We enhance our children’s understanding of our multicultural society and encourage respect and sensitivity towards other people and their beliefs.
