Religious Education



At West Hill, our aim is to deepen pupils’ knowledge about different world religions. Through the teaching of RE, children are encouraged to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, making links to their own experiences.

Children will develop a sound understanding of religions and world views, encouraging them to form their own beliefs and values, acquiring the skills they need to deal with issues raised by religion and belief. We also include and promote British values, ensuring that children are aware of their rights and responsibilities as UK citizens.


Our school uses the Devon Agreed Syllabus for R.E as a basis for our curriculum. The syllabus is designed to support schools in developing and delivering excellence in R.E. This is achieved through studying one religion at a time (systematic units), and then including thematic units which build on the learning by comparing the religions, beliefs and practices discussed.

Children will be taught using a variety of materials and resources and where possible, genuine artefacts and visits will be incorporated into lessons to enhance their learning experience.
