Religious Education (RE) at Ainderby 


What do our children say about RE at our school?

“I like finding out about different religions. We found out about different places of worship and different holy books.”

“I like it when we  go to church so we can sing for our mums and dads”


RE Intent

We are a school who believe in the importance of learning about and learning from the different world religions. In today’s world it is vital to teach children about the traditions, festivals and values of others. We also encourage children to share their experiences of religion and celebrate their own beliefs. RE helps prepare pupils to become responsible citizens by raising local, national and global concerns.

RE Implementation

As a church school, Christian values are the roots of school as seen in our school vision. We follow the Leeds and York Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education, alongside the Christianity matters  resources.  The teaching of RE is creative; taught through a variety of different ways including art, music and drama. We enhance our curriculum by encouraging the children to ask questions and each unit of work begins with a 'Big Question'. 

Children take part in Harvest, Christmas and Easter services and welcome  speakers from different Christian denominations into school as well as other religions when learning about different faiths.

RE Impact 

We hope that our RE curriculum will help our children to develop into compassionate, honest members of the community. We aim for them to be thankful and show kindness and care for others.

We hope that the curriculum allows them to think independently making responsible decisions throughout their lives.
