Religious Education

At Cranham Primary School we aim to deliver a high-quality Religious Education curriculum which will ensure that pupils explore what people believe and the difference this makes to how they live. Pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding, and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.


The teaching of Religious Education at Cranham Primary School follows the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus. The teaching and learning approach has three core elements woven together to provide balance and breadth within teaching and learning.

Making sense of beliefs - The curriculum aims to ensure that pupils can make sense of a range of religious and non-religious beliefs and can identify and explain why these beliefs are understood in different ways within communities.

Making connections - They can understand the impact of religious and non-religious beliefs on ways of living and explain how and why people express their beliefs in diverse ways.  

Understanding the impact -They can make connections between religious and non-religious beliefs and reflect upon connections between these ideas and their own understanding of the world, expressing their personal responses with increasing clarity and understanding.


The teaching of RE at Cranham incorporates the substantive concepts of

  • concepts specific to a religion
  •  concepts common to multiple forms of religious experience
  •  concepts common to religious and non-religious experience


As they progress through the school pupils will study the religious traditions of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Hindus in depth. They will learn about non-religious worldviews and other religions as appropriate.


At Cranham, we aim to ensure that all children understand that RE is not just for the religious but is for all pupils to explore, and the knowledge and understanding gained will support them in their future lives and chosen career paths. During our lessons and through ‘Careers with Cale’ we look at jobs linked to R.E so that children have high aspiration and have a purpose for their learning.
