Religious Education

We follow Surrey’s Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education which is non-denominational. Children are introduced to Christianity through stories, customs and celebrations, special places, people and artefacts. A carefully planned scheme of work includes teaching about aspects of two other religions, Judaism and Islam. The experiences of our children are enhanced by religious artefacts, visitors and regular visits to our parish church.
