As a Church of England Primary school, the school’s religious education curriculum and teaching is extremely important. Through Christian Faith, we acknowledge our responsibility to all, to enrich lives and show love, respect and compassion to all. We believe in lifelong learning, aiming to equip all our children to live in society today and tomorrow in all its fullness.


At East Bergholt Primary school, we follow the Emmanuel Project scheme of work developed by the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich as our key resource to teach from. The Emmanuel project provides challenging and ambitious material for the teaching of RE. This is supported by our Christian Values which are taught half-termly through collective acts of worship.


Throughout each of our pupil’s primary education, they will experience and be taught through 49 enquiry-based units:

  • 29 units on Christianity from EYFS to KS2
  • 20 units on other world faiths and Humanism for KS1 and KS2 (these include; Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism and Sikhism)


Our curriculum provides a foundation for exploring the ‘difficult questions’ about life, and what individual responsibility means. We believe RE should promote values of truth, justice and respect for all people and the environment. We aim to place specific emphasis on pupils valuing others and themselves, within families and community groups, recognising and valuing similarities and differences. At East Bergholt Primary, we aim to prepare pupils for opportunities and experiences of adult life as well as enabling pupils to make informed decisions and explore the significance of humanity and their responsibility towards it.



Children are able to show tolerance and understanding of different beliefs and cultural values. Pupils demonstrate an increasing age-appropriate ability to reflect upon and learn from religion. By the end of their time here, children will have a secure understanding of the key beliefs and values of Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism and Humanism. Pupils will demonstrate high levels of interest and enjoyment in RE.
