RE (Religious Education) at Ashbourne Primary School equips our children with an awareness of a range of faiths and religions in order to live in a contemporary society.

Our work is underpinned by our vision and aims: ‘Nurturing aspiration through happy, creative learning’. Our PRAISE aims are at the heart of every lesson and our focus on the removal of barriers to learning is firmly embedded into all areas of the RE curriculum.

RE teaching at Ashbourne Primary School aims to challenge misconceptions provoke challenging questions and develop tolerance. All children will visit a place of worship and be exposed to differences in people, communities and faiths, helping them to develop an inclusive attitude to our multicultural society.
