Working Together for Excellence and Enjoyment

Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) is taught in accordance with Shropshire’s Agreed Syllabus, supported by the Discovery RE Scheme of Work. This follows a multi-faith approach, whilst keeping the Christian faith at the forefront of our ethos which encourages reflection on the way we behave towards one another.


Collective Worship - Assemblies are held daily, and are either whole school in the hall or in class. Stories are shared which promote a knowledge and understanding of the diversity of the world values of caring for our world and each other. Our assemblies give opportunities for children to reflect on a spiritual and personal level and also celebrate achievements both in and out of school. The vicar from the local Church of England church visits every couple of weeks to deliver a whole school assembly.
Through a wide exploration of religious beliefs and practices we hope the children will gain a deepening insight into other religions as well as their own.

The following religions are studied:

  •  Foundation Stage – children have the opportunity to explore key questions about life and relate these to a range of different religions including Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism.
  • Key Stage One – children learn about the practices and rituals of different religions, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism through a thematic approach.
  • Key Stage Two –  world religions are studied in depth throughout the Key Stage including Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Humanism.






Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
At Lilleshall Primary School we encourage all children to develop their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) awareness through each curriculum area. SMSC is deeply embedded throughout the whole of the RE curriculum and the themes that are taught throughout the year. Every lesson from Early Years to upper primary offers opportunities for children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, and this is clearly mapped and balanced across each year group.
