Religious Education

At Amble first School the teaching of Religious Education aims to:
  • Allow children to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live.

  • Enable children to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief.

  • Encourages children to reflect on their own ideas and ways of living.

We follow Northumberland County Council's Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. This sets out the statutory programmes of study for each year group from Reception to Year Four and provides us with ideas for activities to develop the children's knowledge and understanding of different religions.
Thinking and linking our Religious knowledge and understanding is part of the bigger picture at Amble First school. Throughout the year we reflect upon, celebrate and experience religious occasions together in:
Our Learn to Fly assemblies
Our close links with the local churches- we celebrate harvest, Christmas and Easter at St Cuthbert's
Whole school celebrations- for example, Chinese New Year
Our visitors
Our charity work
