Religious Education


See how much the Father has loved us! His love is so great that we are called God’s children — and so, in fact, we are (1 John 3:1)

As a Church of England School; our vision and values are at the heart of everything we do and play a vital part in our pupils’ education, spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. Our school’s vision, ‘The Best for Every Child – a Unique Child of God’, is built upon and led by our Christian Values, mutual respect and valuing differences. We provide children with the experiences they need to develop into successful learners, confident individuals and compassionate citizens of God’s family. In line with our overall curriculum intent, the development of our children is at the core of what we want to achieve at Cookridge Holy Trinity, not just whilst they are with us but for the rest of their lives. Our RE curriculum is based on a sound understanding of theology. At Cookridge Holy Trinity, we endeavour to ensure that Religious Education is rich, varied, and inspiring; enabling children to explore big questions, reflect critically, and develop skills to analyse, interpret and apply biblical text. We aim to provide a curriculum that promotes Christian values and is inspired by the life and example of Jesus Christ.

As a result of an excellent RE curriculum we want our children to:

  • Understand Christianity as a Global living faith,
  • Understand the Big Story (God’s salvation plan) and the big ideas in Christianity (the concepts).
  • Become Courageous Advocates, making reasoned and well informed judgments about religious and moral issues, enabling them to problem solve ways to combat prejudice and social injustice.
  • Positively engage with their religion and use this to make a positive impact on their friends, families and the local and wider communities.
  • Have an understanding and respect for other people’s faiths and beliefs and the difference it makes to their lives, deepening their understanding of the world and their own experience within it (respect for other cultures and faiths).
  • Leave school as well rounded individuals with a respect and appreciation for their own religion, beliefs, morals as well as those of others.


We want children to engage with the living faith of our school and understand how religious faith can provide a vision for both their spiritual and personal lives. Through strengthening their understanding of our Christian values (Respect, Service, Perseverance, Hope, Compassion, Truthfulness, Thankfulness, Friendship, Trust, Forgiveness, Peace and Courage), we will empower children to make positive choices and develop themselves as unique, significant, and precious individuals.
