Religious Education




At Meole Brace C of E Primary school and Nursery, Religious Education is at the heart of our collective worship and school values. The princial aim of our Religious Education syllabus is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live. This allows pupils to gain the  knowledge,  understanding and skills to handle questions raised by religion and belief and to reflect on their own ideas and ways of living. 

The school motto of Let Your Light Shine encourages the children to persevere in all areas of the lives - academically, socially, in the wider community and through sporting activities.


Religious Education is taught from Reception to Year 6. We follow the Shropshire Agree Syllabus which is a spiral curriculum, allowing  children to revisit and deepen  their understanding of key Christian concepts and other world faiths, both religious and non religious,  which include Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Humanism. The children study thematic units which focus on one word faith and systematic units which compare the beliefs of different world faiths. The children are challenged to think, talk and ask questions about these concepts and world faiths. As a Church school, 50% of our Religious Education syllabus is devoted to Christian units. 




The school has close links with Holy Trinity Church in Meole Brace and has a School Chaplain who works closely with our Pupil Chaplains. To further enrich the children's learning in Religious Education, we have visitors who talk about their faith and beliefs, we use artefact boxes to provide a visual and hands on experience and visit different places of worship.  We recently had a visit from an Imam.
