Our primary school aims to provide a high-quality Religious Education (RE) that enables all children to become religiously literate and understand the nature of religion and beliefs. We want to ensure that our children have a broad and balanced knowledge and understanding of the six main world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism. Additionally, our RE curriculum aims to provide children with an understanding of non-religious world views, including Humanism.  

Our RE curriculum: 

  • Encourages respect, tolerance and understanding of different religions and cultures 

  • Provides a safe and welcoming environment for children to ask questions, explore and express their own beliefs.  

  • Promotes critical thinking, open-mindedness, and respect for diversity, and prepare our children for life in a multicultural society. 




Our RE curriculum is based on the Sheffield Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (SACRE) and is taught to all children from Reception to Year 6. We use a variety of teaching approaches, including stories, role-play, discussion, and visits to places of worship, to engage children and deepen their understanding of different religions and non-religious worldviews.  

Our RE curriculum: 

  • Encourages children to reflect on their own beliefs and values and to develop their own sense of spirituality and morality, through questioning, discussion and debate.  

  • Celebrates religious festivals and encourages children to learn about and respect different cultures and ways of life.   

  • Provides opportunities for children to visit places of worship and hear from guest speakers from different faiths. 




The impact of our RE curriculum is that our children leave Acres Hill with a strong understanding and appreciation of different religions and cultures. Through our RE curriculum, our children develop their knowledge and understanding of different religions and worldviews, and gain a deeper appreciation of cultural diversity. They are able to articulate their own beliefs and understand the beliefs of others, demonstrating respect, tolerance and empathy.  

Our RE curriculum: 

  • Enables children to develop a range of skills, including critical thinking, questioning, and reflection. 

  • Helps our children to approach complex issues with a thoughtful and considered approach.  

  • Allows our children to be well prepared for life in a diverse society.
