Religious Education

Religious Education is a core part of our curriculum here at Trinity and we aim to offer a broad and inclusive range of topics to enhance our distinctive Christian character. Each half term we have a whole school theme in which each class will learn about a different strand; this way we feel the children’s knowledge will continue to grow, giving them the best opportunity when becoming well rounded individuals.

We follow the schemes of work provided by Southwark Diocese to create a curriculum that both represents and celebrates our school community.

By offering this broad curriculum we hope to enlighten the children about not only the Christian faith, but other world faiths and strengthen their skills to express their individuality through our ‘Philosophy for Children’ strand.

As part of Religious Education each class learn about a world religion, and as part of this topic the children are able to visit local places of worship to meet other community members from all faiths and backgrounds and develop both mutual respect and tolerance of those with different beliefs, which are key fundamental British values. 

The teaching of Religious Education at Trinity Primary was classified as 'Good' in our latest SIAMS inspection, where we were rated as Outstanding overall.
