The RE policy and teaching are based in accordance with the East Sussex Education Authority's Agreed Syllabus for primary schools.  The syllabus is broadly Christian and largely denominational, but recognises other beliefs.

The teaching of RE helps children develop religious understanding by exploring what religion means in the lives of both people in the community in which we live and in the wider global community.  Through our teaching of Religious Education we hope to promote tolerance and foster positive attitudes towards the religious beliefs and practices of others.

If parents do not wish their child to be taught the Agreed Syllabus, they should let us know in writing so that the child can be excused and alternative arrangements made.
