Religious Education (RE)


At Holne Chase, our RE curriculum allows all students to develop their knowledge and understanding of a wide range of religions, religious traditions and beliefs. We aim to provide pupils the knowledge and skills to understand key similarities and differences between religions as well as a deeper understand of how people implement these beliefs and traditions into their everyday lives. Our goal is for students to use their knowledge and skills to flourish both within their own communities and as a member of a diverse and global society. We believe in preparing our pupils for life in a diverse and multicultural world and enable them to develop and demonstrate a deep-rooted sense of tolerance and respect for others and their beliefs.


Our curriculum has been written so that each religion has been designated to a particular year group:

Early Years: Different religious festivals will be celebrated throughout the year

Year 1 – Christianity

Year 2 – Christianity and Judaism

Year 3 – Christianity and Islam

Year 4 – Christianity and Hinduism

Year 5 and Year 6 – Christianity and Sikhism

Each year, the children’s knowledge develops as they learn about a new religion’s basic principles, divinity, holy book/scriptures, key celebrations, place of worship and an important story.

Whilst learning about the religion’s key content, the children’s discussions about religion develop progressively year on year as our curriculum includes progressive skills centred on tolerance, citizenship, constructive comparisons and communication for each year group. In doing so, we hope to develop understanding, welcoming children who take interest in other people’s beliefs.

Throughout the year, the children will visit religious buildings and have Celebration Days planned to immerse them in the culture and celebrations. In doing so, we hope for the children to create memories and experiences that promote positive engagement with each religion as their progress through school.


Through our curriculum, we aim to educate our children on the variety of religions that exist in the world.

Furthermore, we aim for our children to understand that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and that it is important to welcome and celebrate our differences and to be tolerant of one another. In doing so, we hope for our children to leave primary school ready for the rest of their education with an open mind and an awareness of society’s diversity and be role models to other students in how to tolerate and appreciate our differences.

Above all else, we believe this curriculum provides our children with the skills, knowledge and understanding to make a positive contribution to modern Britian and British society as they mature.
