Our Religious Education

Our RE Intent


At Peakirk cum Glinton Primary school, our RE curriculum allows pupils to understand the way Christians and other faith communities make sense of texts and varied interpretations.  This will allow them to understand the impact of beliefs in the lives and make connections to wider learning and to themselves. Through Religious Education, we aim for our pupils to develop their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.  This in turn, will develop their understanding of significant theological concepts within Christianity and their own self-understanding of understanding of the world, as part of their wider religious literacy.  We aim for children to make connections, critically reflect upon and apply their own growing understanding of religion and belief, within the practices of all six major religions (particularly Christianity), including Humanism.  Pupils will make comparisons between sacred writing, beliefs and practices.  They will understand the diversity of belief in different religions, locally, nationally and globally.  There will be opportunities to explore a wide range of responses to questions about different faith groups and exploring core theological concepts.  Expressing a view as to why belonging to a faith community may be valuable both to different faith members and to their own lives will be encouraged and supported.  They will discuss and apply their own and others ideas about key questions shared in school.  Pupils will explore religions, engage with their knowledge, and reflect on their learning and their lives through enquiry-based learning.

Prayer Tree


Our prayer tree stands proudly in our school foyer.  At the beginning of September, we took the tree to church to begin our new Christian value of community.  Each child was given a jigsaw piece that they could write a prayer on for a person in the local community.  This could be for someone at school, home or in the village they live in.  Each time we come together for worship, we focus on prayers on the tree and are reminded of the wonderful communties we live in.  We aim to focus on a new Christian value each half term and add to the prayer tree.
