RE at Shakespeare Infant School

In Religious Education, we study the diversity of the world and different religious beliefs and practices.

We follow the Hampshire Agreed syllabus, Living Difference III, which encapsulates the key religions represented in the UK.

Through RE we aim to enable children to acquire an understanding, appreciation and respect for the many different beliefs that people hold, with a specific focus on Christianity and Sikhism.

We will help children to gain an awareness of their own feelings and develop an understanding of the needs and feelings of others.

Children make use of different resources to develop understanding and make R.E. meaningful to them.

Much of our RE teaching is carried out through exploring the children’s ideas and emphasis is given to discussion and positive, quality talk. 

Our religious education learning provides a rich and wide range of experiences which give children opportunities to develop concepts and skills that will help them to make sense of their own experiences and beliefs, and to understand the beliefs and practices of members of faith communities through open, fair minded enquiry.

Indoctrination and conversion are not part of the educational process and therefore have no place in religious education. Religious education is an educational subject in its own right, taught within an educational framework.


We believe that RE makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and supports wider community cohesion.



We have close links with St Peter's Church in Boyatt Wood.


If you are able to support our themes in any way, for example by sharing artefacts or talking to the children about different religious festivals, please contact the School Office and we would be delighted to talk to you further.
