Religious Education


At Rowsley C of E Primary School we aim to provide all our children with an excellent caring and supportive Christian environment.  Our Christian values, which develop the children’s spiritual and moral understanding, underpin all areas of school life as we support our children to become valued, caring and responsible members of society. The strong Christian ethos in our school is reflected in our Religious Education curriculum. Following a key-stage appropriate programme of study, children follow the Understanding Christianity programme alongside the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus. Big Questions also play an important part in allowing children to explore their thoughts and ideas.  


As they explore the subject, children are supported to develop their understanding of Christianity, other religions and world views. Children are taught how to make sense of beliefs, make connections based on their learning and understand their impact of beliefs on themselves, their community and the wider world.  We  are passionate about equipping our children with the skills they need to be effective global citizens. 


'Life in all its fullness' John 10:10
