Religious Education Intent, Implementation and Impact


  • Develop every child’s concepts, beliefs and understanding of religious and non-religious views of their global community.
  • Make sense of religion and worldviews, broadening and deepening knowledge and literacy of religion and reflect on their own ideas.
  • Ask big questions about life, exploring what people believe and what difference this makes to the way we live.
  • Understand what it means to live in our community and the wider world, and to promote values that help pupils be more confident, healthy, optimistic and outward thinking.


  • The school follows the Derbyshire and Derby City Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2020 – 2025.
  • To instil a love of learning about Religious Education, we recognise the need for lessons to be exciting and engaging.
  • Links to current events, selected celebrations or festivals are made throughout the year, giving context to learning.
  • Children of all abilities are challenged and inspired to make progress and excel.
  • Children will experience immersive workshops and visit places of worship to raise the profile of Religious Education.


  • Children make links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world.
  • Children develop an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life and worship.
  • Children show high levels of self-awareness and model respect and empathy for others.
  • Through discussion and feedback, children will talk enthusiastically about their R.E. lessons and other faith days.
  • Children develop a strong moral foundation underpinned by British Values to make a positive impact in their local community, Britain and beyond.

Religious Education Topic Overview 

At Bramley Vale, we follow a two yearly plan  to ensure the curriculum is fully covered.  The outline plan for both Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 is listed below. Each half term, we try to have a school trip or experience linked to our topic for wider learning experiences. If you have any questions about this, please contact the school.
