Alpington & Bergh Apton C of E VA Primary School

Religious Education

As a Church of England Voluntary Aided School we teach RE according to the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus. The children learn about the Christian faith but also about the beliefs and practices of other faiths. They also learn that the Christian religion is multi cultural and practiced world wide.

RE Day

Each term we hold a whole school RE day which focuses on an area of RE learning. Last term the focus was Peace. To support this area of learning a ‘Peace Room’ was set-up in the school library as a prayer space for the whole week.

SIAMS Inspection

We are pleased to inform parents of our very successful Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspection. As a Church of England School our ethos,teaching of RE and Collective Worship is regularly inspected. We are delighted that the inspector judged our Ethos and Leadership and Management of a C of E School to be Outstanding, we are also pleased with the Good judgements on the impact of Collective Worship and effectiveness of religious education.

“This is as a result of teaching which is consistently good and sometimes outstanding, and the Christian values which the school emphasises.”

“The RE curriculum enables pupils to acquire a sound knowledge of the Christian faith.”

“The subject leader is well informed and capable, despite only being in the role formally from the start of this term.”
