Religious Education

Religious Education at Mobberley CE primary school allows all our learners to explore and develop a relationship with God and Jesus Christ as well as explore other major world faiths. We follow the Cheshire East Agreed Syllabus 2016 and enhance this with elements of the Chester Diocesan planning which incorporates Understanding Christianity and the 11 Christian theological concepts: Good News, Christian Community, God, Incarnation, Kingdom of God, Forgiveness, Salvation, Resurrection, Discipleship, Holy Spirit and Creation.

Religious education contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of life and death and issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. In RE they learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.

Every pupil has a statutory entitlement to Religious Education as it makes a distinctive contribution to a broad and balanced curriculum. Pupils should be given the opportunity to explore the role and significance of religion in society and the important beliefs and values that shape the world today. Religious Education helps pupils understand the religious experience of others and the ways in which it gives adherents a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives.
