Brinsworth Manor Infant School

Religious Education

At Brinsworth Manor Infant School we allow our children to think rigorously, creatively, imaginatively and respectfully about their ideas in relation to religions and world views.


We aim to:

*Provoke challenging questions about human life, beliefs, communities and ideas

*Encourage children to explore their own beliefs

*Enable children to build their sense of identity and belonging

*Teach children to develop respect for others

*Prompt children to consider their responsibilities


In RE our children will learn about different ways of life. They will discover, explore and consider many different answers to questions about human identity, meaning and value. They learn to weigh up for themselves the value of wisdom from different communities, to disagree respectfully, to be reasonable in their responses to religions and world views and to respond by expressing insights into their own and others’ lives.


Our RE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of children and aims to prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


We have adopted the local Rotherham syllabus as agreed by the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) 2016 (outlined in the document below). 

We believe that everyone has a right to their own beliefs. Talking about our beliefs helps us to understand each other better. It also helps us to see things in a different way! 

Here are some simple PowerPoints outlining different beliefs to share with your child...
