Religious Education


At Thorpe Primary School our vision for religious education is to develop children’s understanding of different religions, cultures and customs and to celebrate diversity within our community. We want children to learn how to become tolerant and compassionate citizens who demonstrate mutual respect for people with different faiths and beliefs to help challenge prejudice.

We strive to create opportunities for children to learn about a variety of religions, belief systems, festivals and rituals and whenever possible to visit a place of worship. Through our teaching of religious education we want to enable children to develop empathy, generosity and a sense of identity and belonging to help them understand their place in society and how they can contribute to their communities and the wider world.
