Lemington Riverside Primary School


At Lemington Riverside, our Religious Education (RE) curriculum is designed to promote understanding, respect, and appreciation for the diverse world we live in. Guided by the National Curriculum, our RE programme offers students a comprehensive exploration of major world religions, as well as non-religious worldviews.

In the early years, children are introduced to basic concepts and stories from different faiths, fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity. As they progress through the school, they delve deeper into the beliefs, practices, and traditions of religions such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. 

Our RE curriculum emphasises critical thinking and empathy. Children engage in discussions, reflections, and activities that help them understand and respect the beliefs and values of others. They are encouraged to ask questions, consider different perspectives, and draw connections between religious teachings and their own experiences.

By the end of primary school, our children have a well-rounded understanding of various religious and non-religious perspectives, preparing them to be thoughtful, open-minded, and respectful individuals in a multicultural society.
