“Spirituality is not the renunciation of life; it is the art of living fully.”
Our RE Intent
At Overchurch Infant School, our RE curriculum develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society and the global community.
Children develop a knowledge and understanding of the nature of religion and religious beliefs, explore the way that religious beliefs shape people’s life and conduct and start to consider their own response to the religious dimension of life as they start to develop their own beliefs and values.
Our curriculum for Religious Education is based on the Wirral Agreed Syllabus for RE and is tailored carefully to reflect the needs of the children in our school. We enhance our curriculum through our close links with local organisations such as St. Mary’s Church and local care homes. We draw on the expertise and resources of our local Minority Ethnic Achievement Service, with workshops designed to broaden pupil awareness of the multi-cultural world in which we live.
