Orford CEVA Primary School

Orford


CEVA Primary School

RE Statement of Entitlement

As we are a Voluntary Aided Primary School we teach Religious Education according to The Trust Deed, Practices and Beliefs of the Church of England supplied by the St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Guidelines. We use the Diocesean Emmanuel Project 

The aim of Religious Education at the school is to enable pupils to:

  • know about and understand Christianity as a diverse global living faith through the exploration of core beliefs using an approach that critically engages with biblical text

  • gain knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews appreciating diversity, continuity and change within the religions and worldviews being studied

  • engage with challenging questions of meaning and purpose raised by human existence and experience

  • recognise the concept of religion and its continuing influence on Britain’s cultural heritage and in the lives of individuals and societies in different times, cultures and places

  • explore their own religious, spiritual and philosophical ways living, believing and thinking

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and Acts of Worship. Please contact the headteacher if you would like to request your child's withdrawal. However, it is not possible to isolate children from the strong Christian ethos of the school.
