RE and Reflection
RE teaching follows the Local Agreed Syllabus.
The aims of RE in school are to:
- enable the pupils explore their own beliefs
- enable the pupils to build their sense of identity and belief
- To teach the pupils to respect each other
- To prompt the pupils to consider their responsibilities
- To provide the opportunity to explore the school's chosen Christian values
RE has two main strands
1. Learning about religion
2. learning from religion
Children have weekly RE sessions but we also have whole school RE days and weeks during the school year.
All classes have reflection areas and the children to consider the key value of the term and reflect on how they can live it out. This may be through questions, pictures, stories, quietness.

Christianity as a Worldwide Faith
Through our strong links with our local Parish Church and churches in Driffield, as well as our work for charities both in this country and abroad, our children are developing their understanding as Christianity as a worldwide faith.
Studying other Religions
Christianity is the main religion studied in our school, however we also study Hinduism and devote a week each year to the main Hindu celebration of Diwali. We compare and contrast Hinduism with Christianity and focus particularly on the comparison of God with Brahman and his different forms.
