RE - Curriculum Map 

Religious education (RE) in primary schools is not part of the National Curriculum, but it is compulsory for all (maintained) primary schools to teach KS1 religious education and KS2 religious education.

Non-denominational state schools, including academies and foundation schools, follow a 'locally agreed' RE syllabus put together by the local authority, reflecting the fact that Great Britain is traditionally Christian but taking into account the teaching and practices of other principal religions. 

Religious Education (RE) hub offers links to help information about all the major world faiths: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Confucianism and Shinto.

Here at Sholden C of E Primary School we have fantastic links to the local church communities and often use St Nicholas Church in Sholden for Collective worship, Easter and Christmas services and regular prayer workshops. 

Pupils have been lucky enough to visit other churches in the surrounding areas, including Canterbury Cathedral and the Gurdwara in Gravesend
