RE at Nutfield Church Primary School

Nutfield Church Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England school. This means that the teaching of RE is given significant importance. The Governors have adopted the Southwark Board of Education’s syllabus which is taught in each class by the class teachers, from Reception to Year Six.

In order to allow the children to have the opportunity to explore deeper questions about life and to learn about Christianity alongside a wide range of other faiths and cultures it is placed in the Core part of our Teaching, Learning and Assessment model. Further to this, we allocate 10% curriculum time (a full afternoon or morning) to the subject. We teach RE through an enquiry model, using Art, Dance, English, Drama, through visits and visitors.

The National Society has issued a statement for everyone to understand the children’s educational entitlement for high quality RE.

The ‘Statement of Entitlement’ can be read here.
