Religious Education


At Colebrook Infant Academy, we recognise the value that a high quality Religious Education curriculum can offer to our pupils.  Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their confidence as well as their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection. The main aim of RE is to engage pupils to develop an understanding of and an appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community. Children are also given the opportunity to explore what their own beliefs might be.



At Colebrook Infant Academy, we follow the Swindon Agreed Syllabus for RE. 

Religious Education (RE) lessons and activities are inclusive and are taught to all children.  Our teaching promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. It reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions represented in Great Britain. Our teaching supports pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, attitudes, practices and rituals. They will also be aware that some people have no attachment to religious beliefs.



At the end of KS1, we aim for all pupils in our school to be educated to develop spiritually, academically, emotionally and morally to enable them to better understand themselves and others and to cope with the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of living in a rapidly changing, multicultural world.
