RE Lead:  Mrs Louise Jaitly

At Hillcroft, we very aware of the drive to make RE a meaningful and relevant subject, Here, at  Hillcroft Primary School, the aim of mReligious Education is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain.  We foster an appreciation of the way that religious beliefs shape life and our behaviour. We develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and philosophy of the school. At Hillcroft Primary, Religious Education plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, particularly PSHE  in promoting the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development of our children. At Hillcroft, it is our aim to facilitate the children in  making links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world.  Our children are developing an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life, which they are then able to communicate to the wider community.

Discovery RE is used across the school for the teaching of RE at Hillcoft. This programme focuses the RE learning on Christianity which is taught in every year group but it also includes educating children about a wider range of religions too; Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Buddhism. The coverage is documented below;
