Religious Education

Stanley St Peter’s RE Vision 2021-2022


At Stanley St Peter’s our main aim is to ‘Unlock Potential and Celebrate Success.’ We recognise that Religious Education is an academic subject which provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life. We want all children to develop their knowledge and understanding of Christianity amongst other religions (principally Judaism at KS1 and Islam at KS2) and religious traditions. RE lessons enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.

Through knowledge of religions and religious practices, it teaches pupils to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs and helps to challenge prejudice. We want our pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others; to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to the wider society. Through RE, we want to teach pupils at Stanley St. Peter’s to learn to live respectfully together by sharing their views and disagreeing well with each other. We encourage empathy, generosity and compassion.


How will we achieve this?


Teachers use their subject knowledge and understanding of the skills and knowledge progression to unlock pupils’ potential by ensuring children have the opportunities to:

  • Read, listen to and interpret a range of religious stories
  • Ask increasingly provoking and challenging questions
  • Weigh up ideas and argue well
  • Think deeply, evaluate and reflect
  • Make connections within their learning
  • Interpret religious art and architecture
  • Explore through drama and music
  • Reflect on their own views
  • Show respect for others’ views
  • Consider their own responsibilities to themselves and others
  • Have access to the reflect area for time to evaluate on their learning


  • Each child knows and understands the learning outcome and success criteria for each lesson and is able to explain how they can achieve these
  • Progress is evident through a progression of skills throughout the year across the year groups
  • Religious vocabulary is used and marked upon

Pupil voice


  • Children are engaged in the lessons and understand the value of what they are learning. As a result of this, pupils are not deterred if they do not quickly establish an understanding, instead they are motivated to achieve the learning outcome by the end of the session.  They understand that making mistakes is as much as a part of learning/discovery as is being successful
  • Enjoyment and enthusiasm are expressed when the children are discussing, debating and evaluating their RE learning
  • Children are able to articulate and explain their reasoning, thought-process and strategies with confidence
