RE and Collective Worship
Welcome to R.E. at The Academy at St James!
Take a look at our R.E. video for our learning across school in Summer 1!
Our R.E. Vision:
As a church school at St James, we firmly believe that Religious Education is essential to our wider understanding of ourselves and the local and global communities we live in. Our R.E. intent is to provide children with the opportunity to understand themselves, their beliefs and those of the wider world around them, whilst thinking in a questioning and enquiring way.
Alongside other subject leaders, we have created a curriculum that builds on prior learning and skills throughout the different year groups, both for Christianity using the (Understanding Christianity resource) and other religions/faith enquiries.

Our R.E. Overview provides more information on what will be covered by each year group – including recurring themes – and an outline of the progression our children will make, as they continue their Religious Education at St James.
The image below shows the overview for Reception. Please click on the link to see the progression throughout school from EYFS to Year 6.
