Religious Education


We aim to foster a spirit of tolerance, co-operation and understanding both within our own community and in the wider world. Religious Education is central to our efforts. We teach children about Christianity and other world religions. We see ourselves as part of a village community in a wider society that is multi-faith, multi-cultural.

Our R.E. curriculum is provided in accordance with the Agreed Syllabus produced by North Yorkshire County Council.

At Riverside our R.E. curriculum intent and implementation looks like this:


In the main, aspects of Christianity and other religions will be explored in a cross-curricular way, utilising first hand experiences wherever possible. We utilise the experience of various visiting clergy and other members of faith communities to help in both curriculum delivery and acts of collective worship.

Each year, the whole school particiaptes in a 'Festivals Week'. This is a chance for pupils to learn about and explore well-known religious festivals across the world. It is a fun and practical week that is well-recieved by the children and culminates with a whole school assembly to share and celebrate what the children have learnt. Some of the children's fantastic work is also displayed in the hall and can be seen below:
