Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) is a core subject at St Margaret's.  It is taught through two main schemes of work:

Understanding Christianity

A resource from the Church of England's Education Office designed to help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to the world and their own experience within it. 

The Emanuel Project 

An enquiry based scheme of work covering all year groups from EYFS to Year 6.  It provides units of work on both Christianity and other world faiths.


Alongside this resource we also use the 'Brighton and Hove Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education'.  This provides an effective RE programme of study to enable pupils and students to have the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to hold balanced and informed conversations about religious and worldviews.

RE at St Margaret's is taught for one hour a week and is taught alongside daily collective worship.
