Religious Education

Pedmore welcomes children of all faiths and of no faith.
R.E is studied in accordance with the Dudley Agreed Syllabus and the Worcester Diocesan Scheme and is central to the life of our school. We focus on what we can learn about religion and what we can learn from religion.
Along with Christianity, children learn most about Judaism and Islam. Other world religions are also studied but in less detail. Children are encouraged to reflect upon what it is to have faith and to discover the similarities and differences between faiths.
RE and philosophy lessons are recognised by learners, staff, parents and governors as being a high priority in the life of the school. Behaviour and attitudes to learning are exemplary because pupils are fully engaged and enjoy the work. Learners gain considerable spiritual, moral and cultural development and personal insight from RE.

“Pupils understanding of the school’s Christian values and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development are also enhanced through the rich and varied RE curriculum. Regular assessment of RE enables children to discuss their progress and respond to comments in their books. This whole-school commitment to RE, along with a clear understanding of its purpose in a church school, ensures that provision and outcomes in the subject are outstanding.”
