Religious Education

Religious Education at St Paul's


Religious Education is taught according to the Buckinghamshire Agreed Syllabus and Oxford Diocesan Board of Education Scheme which, in turn, reflects the Church of England Statement of Entitlement.


In the Foundation Stage children are given opportunities for spiritual and moral dimensions through the Early Learning Goals. Their learning can be through both separate and cross-curricular themes which include: belonging, important experiences, celebrations in their own families, and celebrations of other people in the communityThey share religious stories using story sacks to enhance their learning.


At Key Stage 1 pupils will study Christianity and Judaism in depth. Other religions will be referred to. Themes include:

belonging, special places, stories, leaders, and how the story of creation differs in Christianity and Judaism.  The curriculum begins with a big question and all RE lessons reflect this question.


At Key Stage 2 pupils study Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Humanism.  The curriculum is taught through the Oxford Diocesan Board of Education Scheme, each half term a big question is considered and explored to develop the children's religious literacy and their knowledge of worldviews.
