Religious Education

Religious Education lies at the very heart of our curriculum and school life. It reflects and conveys our role as a Christian School.

RE enables pupils to think theologically and explore the great questions of life and death, meaning and purpose; reflect critically on the truth claims of Christian belief; see how the truth of Christianity is relevant today and face the challenge of Jesus' teaching in a pluralist and post-modern society; experience the breadth and variety of the Christian community and become active citizens, serving their neighbour.

The Governing Body at St Matthew’s have chosen that the school uses the syllabus from the Southwark Diocese as a framework for their teaching in RE. The curriculum teaches our pupils about religion in accordance with two attainment targets, Learning About Religion (AT1) and Learning From Religion (AT2). These set out the skills, understanding and knowledge that pupils at different stages of their learning are expected to have.
