Religious Education

Our Vision for Religious Education:

  • To provide opportunities for pupils to recognise and develop their own beliefs, values and attitudes
  • To support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils
  • To create a school where every individual is appreciated and valued
  • To have our Christian values permeate a rich and varied RE curriculum 


Shaping Our Religious Education Curriculum: 

At Chorlton C of E we follow the Manchester Agreed Syllabus. Our Religious Education curriculum is shaped around three areas- Believing, Expressing and Living. We follow a 'Big Question' approach to allow children to explore and learn. Children learn about religion with a focus on beliefs, teachings and sources, practices and ways of life and forms of expression. Pupils learn to communicate their knowledge and understanding using specialist vocabulary. The curriculum includes opportunities to identify and develop an understanding of ultimate questions and ethical issues. Children also learn from religion, this develops their ability to reflect on, and respond to, their own experiences and learning about religion. It develops children's skills of application, interpretation and evaluation of what they learn about religion, particularly questions of identity and belonging, meaning, purpose, truth, values and commitments, and communicating their responses.


Our Religious Education curriculum is also drawn from: 

  • Christian Aid
