The Religious Education Curriculum
St Nicholas has adopted the London Diocesan Board for Schools Syllabus for teaching Religious Education. This fulfils all legal requirements and entitlement as a Church of England school.
The Curriculum Overview tab of the website provides a map of themes covered from Reception until the end of Year 6. Care has been taken to build in meaningful cross curricular themes with other subjects where possible.
Two-thirds of the curriculum is based on the teachings of Christianity.
One-third of the curriculum is based on the teaching of other faiths.
At St Nicholas, we hope that learning to and from religions will: -
provide a sense of self-worth, enabling children to reflect on their uniqueness as human beings, to share their feelings and emotions with others and to appreciate the importance of forming and maintaining positive relationships.
