Greenfield Primary School

Welcome to Greenfield Primary School.

Religious Education

Subject Leader: Mrs Lewthwaite

RE Overview

At Greenfield Primary School, we will help all children to develop an understanding of the place that religion plays in people’s lives and how it has influenced history and the growth and development of society. We will use the Oldham Agreed Syllabus and Discovery RE as our scheme of work and we will make meaningful links with the other subjects of the curriculum. Our aim is to ignite a curiosity to learn about religion that will help children understand about faiths, beliefs and how religion has influenced the development of mankind and the society in which we live. Where parents request that their children be withdrawn from the teaching of religious education, other appropriate educational provision will be made for them.
