Our RE Intent

At Black Horse Hill Infant School, our RE curriculum develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of  the local, national and global community.

In the Early Years and Key Stage 1 will children develop a knowledge and understanding of the nature of religion and religious beliefs; explore the way that religious beliefs shape people’s life and conduct. The children will begin to consider their own response to the religious dimension of life as they start to develop their own beliefs, tolerance and values. They will experience this by exploring the diversity of people and communities in Modern Britain.

Our curriculum for Religious Education is based on the Wirral Agreed Syllabus for RE and is tailored carefully to reflect the needs of the children in our school. We enhance our curriculum through our close links with the local church, St Michael of All Angels. We attend the church throughout the year and have fortnightly visits from their Open the Book team.

We believe that all children should have equality of opportunity and should be able to access the curriculum regardless of race, religion, gender or ability.
