Religious Education

Religious Education


Trefonen’s Religious Education curriculum has a richness and diversity, unified by a shared Christian faith and founded on the ethos that we do not solely seek academic excellence but also aim to  nurture and encourage our children in the essence of our Christian faith. With this at the forefront, we seek to instil in our pupils a genuine spirit of enquiry,  so that they may, for themselves, grow in their faith. In pursuit of this, it is our objective that our children are religiously literate – underpinned always by a strong theological understanding, and expressed through our Church of England foundation. It is a fervent principle of ours to provide opportunities for our children to take part in collective worship and charitable acts, so that they may live out their faith, and have powerful and positive experiences to support them throughout their lives. Ultimately, our school mission statement epitomises our vision for Religious Education – that our children are learning in love and and growing in faith.


At Trefonen we follow the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus for R.E. Pupils will study Christianity through the key concepts of God, Creation, Fall, Incarnation, Salvation, Gospel, Kingdom of God and people of God. Pupils will also study other world faiths, including: Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. We deliver our curriculum using the ‘Discovery’ RE scheme of work. Through this scheme we aim to provide children with a thoughtful and challenging curriculum, using key questions, that will help them to develop their knowledge, nd understanding appreciation and respect of Christianity and other World Faiths.


Through our R.E, curriculum we aim to foster knowledge, understanding, appreciation and respect of our diverse local, national and global religions, including knowledge, understanding and respect of different beliefs, practices, values, traditions and worldviews.
