Religious Education

Our Religious Education curriculum ensures that the children are provided with a high-quality religious education which inspires them to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world religions that will remain with them for the rest of their life. RE contributes dynamically to children’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

Our RE curriculum encourages pupils to become resilient, mindful and inquisitive learners who are accepting of the different religions within the world that we live. Pupils are given opportunities to understand and reflect on their own beliefs and values and make connections with those of others.


Religious Education at Mead equips pupils with a systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions.


Our pupils will respond to and challenge responses and enables children to develop their own ideas, values and identities and provide them with a sense of belonging.


Children will carry out fieldwork where they get to experience first hand different environments linking to the topics they are learning about, such as places of worship. 

Curriculum Planning:

Careful curriculum planning ensures that our pupils build on existing knowledge and skills over the course of their Mead learning journey. This leads to better understanding, knowledge retention and engagement.
