RE

At Myton Park Primary School, we follow the Agreed syllabus for Stockton on Tees.

Religious education has an important part to play in the development of our pupils, and in the school curriculum.

The world is shrinking. People travel further, meet people from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds and are more connected to each other, due especially to the huge technological leaps made over recent years. Children need to embrace the changing world around them, understand and respect the beliefs and backgrounds of the people they will meet throughout their lives and develop their own set of beliefs and values. RE is a statutory subject and we aim to provide children with a broad and balanced curriculum that includes meaningful and thought-provoking approach.

We endeavour to provide Religious education, which is engaging, ignites the imagination and gives children plenty to think about. Studying sacred stories, exploring artefacts, symbols and art, spotting similarities and differences, meeting members of the local community, visiting places of worship and debating ‘big’ questions will all help your children become well-informed and thoughtful citizens of tomorrow.
