At The Mead Infant and Nursery School, it is our aim that through the teaching of RE that the children develop their enthusiasm for the study of religion and beliefs, and thus enhance their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We celebrate the diversity of the school community and develop a respect, appreciation and understanding of principle religions and non-religious viewpoints. The curriculum provokes challenging questions and children learn to articulately express their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences, whilst respecting the right of others to differ. RE at The Mead supports the children’s developing sense of identity within The Mead family itself as well as within the local wider community and the diverse world in which we live in.
A thematic approach is taken in our Early Years where topics are based upon children’s own lives and experiences. The children are introduced to Christianity, and other religions and beliefs represented within their own class and/or school. In Key Stage 1 the curriculum introduces children to the study of Christianity and aspects of Judaism and Islam and incorporating, where appropriate, consideration of non-religious world views such as Humanism
RE at The Mead is taught through weekly lessons in accordance with the Surrey Agreed Syllabus 2017-2021
To enrich the children’s learning experiences, Key Stage 1 classes take part in a visit to a place of worship including visits to Worcester Park Baptist Church and North West Surrey Synagogue and to Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden. Children will also learn about many of the calendar's religious festivals in our assemblies.
