Teaching of RE at Sissinghurst VA Church of England Primary School

For 2017-18 we have introduced the new curriculum created  by The Church of England Education Office called “Understanding Christianity”.  It has a fresh, modern content to help children understand Christianity today as a world faith.  It aids an understanding of the Bible, explores Christian practice and encourages personal reflection.  Alongside this we are continuing to teach other World Faiths including Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Islam.  Our aim here again is to deepen children’s understanding of these faiths and to understand similarities and differences to Christianity.
