Trefonen Primary School follows the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus for R.E. which provides opportunities for children to develop their knowledge and understanding of Christianity and World Faiths.

R.E is taught to foster knowledge, understanding and respect of our diverse local and global community.  Pupils study Christianity through the key concepts of God, Creation, Fall, Incarnation, Salvation, Gospel, Kingdom of God and people of God. Pupils study world faiths such as Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. Pupils develop knowledge, understanding and respect of different beliefs, values, traditions and worldviews.

R.E. is taught through the ‘Discovery’ Scheme of work. Discovery RE is committed to provide opportunities for children to access challenging RE through a wide range of key questions (an enquiry-based approach). With the New Shropshire Syllabus now being published, we can be assured that Discovery RE provides the necessary content, concepts and disciplinary Knowledge (crucial for pupils’ personal growth).
R.E is taught through the school in specific lessons. Pupils are encouraged to consider World Views and how to value different viewpoints. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, R.E. and World Views is taught in the area of learning ‘Understanding the world’.


Our school has close links with All Saint Church, and visits are made as part of our R.E. work.  Our Vicar also visits school regularly as part of the children’s R.E. activities. The school invites visitors of world faiths to work with pupils on a regular basis.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of R.E. and are advised to talk with school staff, should they wish to withdraw their children.
