“Differences were not meant to divide, but enrich” J H Oldham
At Mersey Park Primary School, our intent for Religious Education is to help engage, inspire, challenge and encourage the children, so that they develop a better understanding of the many religions that make up our multi-cultural society. We will equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to explore these different religious beliefs, whilst learning how to answer challenging questions concerning them. Furthermore, through trips, visitors to the school and our ‘Multi-Faith’ weeks, we will teach the children to know how Religious Education promotes discernment, combat prejudice and therefore prepare them for adult life.
Curriculum coverage is shown here:
As well as delivering inspiring and creative lessons, children have the opportunity to visit different places of worship and identify with members of the community from different cultures and beliefs.
We enjoy engaging and educational assemblies throughout the school year as we invite special people from the community and our own staff to deliver informative assemblies around a range of topics within RE, Rights Respecting Schools and SMSC.
Examples of the events, extra curricular activities and trips are:
- Christmas Service

- Trips to St Catherine’s Church
