Religious Education

RE is an important curriculum subject. It is important in its own right and also makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children and supports wider community cohesion.

The Government is keen to ensure all pupils receive high-quality RE. At Deer Park School, we do this by implementing the Richmond Upon Thames Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education – Exploring and understanding values and beliefs. Our inclusive curriculum enables children to explore various religions such as: Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Buddhism. Children learn that there are many differing views and experiences in the world outside of their own and make links between the shared values that religion can promote in synchrony with core British values.
