Redhill Primary School

Together we dream, believe and achieve





At Redhill, our dream is for all children to leave our school as:


Respectful young people who not only accept but celebrate and embrace the benefits of living in a world and a community where people follow a variety of religions and beliefs, recognising not just the differences but also the common strands that connect different belief systems.


Knowledgeable students who recognise and understand the ways in which religion and beliefs impact on the everyday life and practises of groups and individuals, show an awareness of key religious stories, places and symbols and understand the role of key religious figures.


Life-long learners filled with awe and wonder, inspired to explore more deeply the moral codes guided by people’s religious beliefs and question their own spiritual beliefs in response.



Religious education provides rich opportunities for children at Redhill to learn about things that matter in the lives of many people in the local area and the wider world. Our Religious Education curriculum asks our pupils to examine and reflect upon their own ideas and values by learning about and from religious ideas.  


Religious Education at Redhill poses challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.  Our curriculum develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, other principal religions, other religious traditions and other world views that offer answers to deep questions.  Through our progressive and carefully structured curriculum Religious Education lessons give learners at Redhill opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, beginning to think for themselves and construct their own understanding of their place in the world.


Understanding people’s beliefs can be a first step to recognising and appreciating diversity. At a time when religious beliefs guide the lives of billions of people worldwide, this is still of vital importance. Religious education lessons at Redhill ask our learners to encounter religious and non-religious responses to some difficult questions about how we should live in a world of difference.
