At Barford C of E Primary School, we are passionate about the fundamental importance of RE in both the curriculum and in the wider lives of our children. As a voluntary-aided school, RE is taught as a core subject each week throughout Key Stage 1 and 2, and we encourage children to use and develop their skills in RE and to participate in critical thinking.
In the Early Years, RE is run through a combination of child and adult led activities, linking to that half term's topic. Children engage in a range of activities within RE, such as role play, art and stories.
We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages.
Teachers follow the new Warwickshire and Coventry Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2017-2022.
As a church school, collective worship at Barford School is an integral part of school life. It creates, nurtures and sustains a sense of community and creates an opportunity to bring to life the core values of the school and local area. Each half term we focus on one of these values, allowing us to come together, celebrate children’s achievements and provide an opportunity for pupils to reflect. Our close relationship with St Peter's Church provides children with another regular link to the Christian faith. Pupils are involved in various services held both at school and at the church throughout the year.
Reverend Jessett regularly leads Collective Worship.
