  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

Vision for R.E.

At Southfield, we provide children with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of the religious practices and beliefs of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, which allows our children to embrace and respect the diverse global community which they live.

Through our RE curriculum we provide children with the opportunity to share their own religious beliefs and values, as well as providing them with the opportunity to ask questions, relating to their own beliefs and that of others.

Children are encouraged to reflect on their own developing beliefs and values and learn to be respectful and compassionate of the beliefs and values of others, through understanding their traditions and practices.

Southfield looks to build children’s sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities whilst learning to live respectfully together.
