Hello and welcome to Religious Education at Southwick Primary. Here we look at 6 main religions Christianity, Hinduism, Islam (Muslims), Buddhism, Judaism, and Sikhism.  At Southwick Primary you will be able to see the study of religion and belief linked to personal reflections, meaning and purpose. At Southwick the RE lead is Miss Buxton (Nursery teacher).

Here at Southwick Primary we strive to have an outstanding level of religious understanding and knowledge. We feel it is important to have a thorough engagement with a range of ultimate questions about the meaning and significance of existence. We strive to have an in depth understanding of religious beliefs and teachings, with a focus on festivals and celebrations.

Within Southwick, we follow ‘The Essentials Curriculum’ breaking down concepts into three key milestones. All staff use these to inform and support planning, fostering a progressive and skill based curriculum.

We understand the importance of exceptional independence. Allowing the children to have the ability to think for themselves and take the initiative in, asking questions, carrying out investigations, evaluating ideas and working constructively with others.

We have an ongoing pride in our significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity, which are shown in the children’s responses to their learning in RE.
