Southfield Junior School


Religious education at southfield

At Southfield, we follow the Swindon agreed syllabus for Religious Education. Key questions are used to ensure a depth of study and understanding across a range of religions and beliefs. 

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.
