Religious Education


We intend to:

  • Ensure that children will develop their understanding and awareness of others beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures.
  • - Encourage children to develop their own beliefs and values by having the opportunities to ask and explore through enquiry based questioning.
  • - For all staff model and encourage children to develop respect, tolerance, empathy and compassion towards others.
  • - To develop children’s cultural capital in order to prepare them for their future. We will teach pupils the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes for everyday life and beyond.


  • We follow the North Yorkshire Agreed RE Syllabus, complete with planning units.
  • We hold RE weeks using the ‘Big Idea’ approach. These are the first week of every half term.
  • Each class evidences work in their class ‘Big Book’, to show progression throughout their time at Meadowside.
  • We invite visitors in regularly to work with all year groups. We have fantastic links with the local churches.
  • Global issues are weaved through RE to give children the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed.
  • We assess pupils using Insight.


  • Children have developed their own strong morals and values that are personal to them
  • Children will have expressed their own beliefs and values, which will be shown through pupil voice discussions at various times throughout the year.
  • Staff will feel confident delivering and assessing RE due to CPD opportunities.

R.E. Week - Autumn 2
For our recent R.E. week, each class focused on a different religion with the theme 'Life as a...'. For our landing, we put on a showcase for all our parents to show off our amazing learning! It was wonderful to see so many parents and the children were incredibly proud of their work.
