Religious Education


Religious Education (RE) is a subject that nurtures understanding, fosters respect and enables reflection; connecting children more deeply with those around them, and with themselves.


Effective RE has a wide-reaching impact in our school, particularly on the ways in which pupils think and behave. RE encourages children to develop empathy; to think about how other people feel; to show acceptance and tolerance; and to make moral decisions, all of which can be seen in the way children conduct themselves in the classrooms, corridors and playgrounds at Cookley. Our children show respect, they think of others, they demonstrate acceptance and love, they build strong relationships and they consider the implications of their actions when making decisions. 


Religious Education It is taught according to 'The Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education 2020-2025' of Worcester County Council with children experiencing weekly taught sessions from Reception.  Nursery pupils engage with Religious Education through their topic learning, finding out about festivals and circle time discussions. 

RE at Cookley:

Our intent is to teach Religious Education to encourage learners to embody these important qualities; to be independent, motivated and respectful of all others. ​


Our  principal aim is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.  ​


At Cookley Sebright Primary, it is our intent that our curriculum for RE ensures that all pupils:  ​

  • Make sense of a range of religious and non-religious beliefs​

  • Understand the impact and significance of religious and non-religious beliefs​

  • Make connections between religious and non-religious beliefs, concepts, practices and ideas studied.​
