At Great Missenden School we believe that Religious Education should contribute educationally to the development of pupils as individuals and members of society. This is achieved by fostering a reflective approach to life in the context of a growing understanding and appreciation of the experiences, attitudes, beliefs and religious practices of the human race.


Children are taught RE during set lessons, throughout our creative curriculum and also take part in collective worship during daily assemblies.



We have adopted the scheme of work set out in the Buckinghamshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2016-2021. This scheme uses units of work that build bridges between the religious content and the pupils own experiences.

In studying RE, pupils experience a variety of approaches to their learning, including:

  • Presentation by the teacher to include story telling
  • Discussion and debates
  • Individual and group investigations
  • All forms of ICT
  • Role play and simulations
  • The use of artefacts
  • Guest speakers from a range of faith communities
  • Use of a wide range of written resources
  • Visits to places of worship
