Religious Education at Friezland Primary School

‘A Family Committed to Making a Difference’


At Friezland, we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion so that they can understand the world around them. We believe that Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different
faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection.

We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. Our Religious Education  curriculum is enhanced further with trips to places of worship in our local area and religious visitors.
