"While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again… is that we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."

At Stamford Bridge Primary School, we encourage pupils to understand the importance of the world and themselves and learn how these ideas have shaped, and will continue to shape, where we live on a local and global scale. We focus on three key aspects: theology (believing), philosophy (thinking) and social sciences (living). We use these skills to explore many religions and world views. We want pupils to consider and question what they learn and relate the views of believers with their own experiences.
We follow the East Riding syllabus for Religious Education at Stamford Bridge Primary School. We use a range of resources and ideas to ensure children leave school with all the necessary skills and knowledge needed to understand a range of religions, world views and ultimately their place in the world. This includes exploring artefacts, sacred texts, stories, symbols, our local history and pictures. We encourage children to show their learning through a range of methods including art, drama and music as well as in written form. Religious Education is taught on a two year programme, so all children have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills further across a range of themes.
Children at Stamford Bridge Primary School are well equipped for the real world and the different religions and views they will observe or experience. They will understand that everyone has an important role to play and they will be understanding and considerate of others and their personal views, whether they are the same or different to theirs.
