At Westcliff Primary Academy we believe that RE has an important part to play in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. Children are taught to understand and respect the importance of religious beliefs in the world around them. We encourage children to use and develop their skills in RE and to participate in critical thinking. We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages.

In the Foundation Stage, RE is taught through topics based upon children’s own lives and their own experiences. During Key Stage 1 and 2, the study of Christianity is developed through a variety of topics and religious beliefs within Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism are explored.
