Lady Modiford’s and Meavy Primary schools are Church of England Voluntary Aided schools. Within this specifically Christian environment, we aim to provide religious education in accordance with our school vision and values of the Federation, which are central to the life and ethos.
We aim to enable children to develop spiritual understanding, to begin to comprehend what it means to be a person of faith, and to accept and value those whose commitments, values and ways of life are different from their own promoting good and caring relationships with others.
We follow the RE Agreed Syllabus for Devon and Torbay, which incorporates Understanding Christianity. The syllabus enables the children to develop their understanding of Christianity, alongside their understanding of the world and their own experience within it. The children learn about the world’s main religions, gaining a greater awareness, understanding and respect for different faiths and cultures. This provides a holistic and balanced RE curriculum. Every year each class learn about Christianity and another world religion. (Click on link to see the New RE Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity rolling programme.)
Class topics are linked to the RE topics when possible. The children are given the opportunity to discuss and reflect upon world events as and when they happen, both as individual classes, and as a whole school in Collective Worship.
