Religious Education and School Assemblies

Religious Education at Eastling allows us to explore in depth Christianity and the other major Religions represented in Britain, by looking into the beliefs, daily lives and worship of their followers. We take into account the different viewpoints for each, alongside people with non-religious beliefs and use lines of enquiry to explore and reflect on our own personal beliefs. Through this, we learn to value everyone’s opinion. R.E plays a very important part in our broad, balanced and coherent curriculum to which all pupils are entitled at Eastling Primary School. Lessons are designed to be thought provoking, engaging, fun and interactive. Through using a variety of teaching techniques such as drama, art, discussion, use of artefacts, stories, pictures, periods of stillness and reflection, pupils have opportunities to learn both about religion and from religion. Our RE curriculum plays an important role in helping to promote British Values and our SMSC development.


Non-denominational Religious Education is provided for all children as part of the curriculum and is taught in accordance with the 2017-22 Kent Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.


The Kent Agreed Principle Aim of Religious Education


The principle aim of Religious Education is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
