RE at Boxford Primary School

Aims and Objectives

Within the curriculum, RE provides a unique contribution to the education of the whole child – body, mind and spirit, and enables pupils to explore meaning and purpose in their own lives. It is important in its own right and provides a reminder to the importance of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils.

Our specific aims at Boxford are to:

  • Provide a broad and balanced RE curriculum within the framework of statutory requirements and those of the locally agreed syllabus (Suffolk Agreed Syllabus).
  • Provide opportunities for the cultivation of children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Support children’s self-reflection about fundamental human beliefs and the purpose of life so that they can develop their own personal framework to live and flourish individually within a global community.
  • Develop pupils’ knowledge and appreciation of Christianity and learn from other principal religions and world-views within the UK’s rich heritage of culture and diversity, whilst affirming their own faith.
  • Prepare our pupils for adult life and employment by enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity to others regardless or faith, race, culture or beliefs.
