Christ Church is a Church of England faith school and Religious Education is taught as a core subject. Pupils are taught about and learn from Christian faith as well as gaining knowledge and awareness of the beliefs and practices of other major religions. The school teaches from the Scheme of Work recommended by the London Diocese and the lessons learnt are often integrated into other areas of the curriculum.
Children are taught through a range of activities designed to promote questions of belief and value. We aim to inspire our pupils by R.E. and to recognise it as a challenging but safe place to explore their own and others’ religious, spiritual and philosophical convictions critically and responsibly. We encourage the children to share their beliefs within their classes and regularly invite parents of other religions to do the same.
Events such as RE Week (held in the spring term), as well as regular visits to our local church and other places of worship, ensure that pupils can enjoy first hand experiences of religious practice.
As a Church of England school there are daily acts of Christian worship, including termly church services, which all children are expected to attend.
