RE at Hardwick

Religious Education

‘The Principal aim of RE in Derby City schools is to enable pupils to participate in an on-going search for wisdom, through exploring questions raised by human experience and answers offered by the religions and beliefs of the people of Derby City and the wider community, so as to promote their personal development.’   The Derby City Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2015-20


At Hardwick Primary School, we believe that religious education should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life. The school understands that the British Isles is a multi-cultural nation, which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population. As a result, Christianity will receive the appropriate weighting within the religious education curriculum. Due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths. Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others will be promoted as part of our programme. The school has adopted: The Derby City Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2015-20.

At Hardwick Primary School, we celebrate Religious festivals throughout the year and invite visitors from the community to lead assemblies. Classes also visit different places of worship and each year group focuses on and study a different religion along with Christianity.
