Religious Education Curriculum 

Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall Aims, Vision and associated Values of the school. Our Christian Vision, Values and teaching strategies play an important role in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the children in our care. A variety of strategies are used to enable the children to develop their knowledge and apply their learning about religion to their everyday lives. 


We plan our Religious Education curriculum in accordance with the Nottinghamshire RE Agreed Syllabus and weave in elements from the Understanding Christianity resource to include units of work that cover some core Christian concepts such as God, Creation, Incarnation, Gospel and Salvation. In addition we include teaching about other major world faiths, as well as belief systems that are not religious.

Religious Education Policy

Easter is the celebration of Jesus conquering death when he was resurrected from the grave, connecting with the celebration of Spring arriving and bringing new life, leaving the cold Winter behind. Since Easter represents the fulfillment of God's promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar.


At Lowdham C of E Primary School we have taken time to focus on the significance of this in our school community. The pupils and staff have participated in prayer reflection activities around the school. We thought about the cross and prayed for loved ones, for peace in the world and for help to bring about positive changes.


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. (Peter 1:3-4)

Godly Play- ‘The Mystery of Easter’

In the lead up to Easter, all year groups were able to take part in an activity focusing on the cross. We thought about Lent and how this is a time of preparation because Easter is the most important celebration for Christians. Here are some thoughts and reflections from our pupils:-


"I liked that it helped us think about Easter and what it means!"

"The story of the cross made us think more about things we don’t always get time to think about."

"The story about the cross and the colours explains it really clearly!"

"It makes you stop and think!"

"It connects it all together!"

Here at Lowdham C of E Primary we get very excited about Christmas! However, we also know that the true meaning of Christmas can sometimes get a little sidelined and forgotten amidst all the glitter and tinsel. So every year we have a focus week where we spend time engaging in the events from over 2,000 years ago when God sent his son Jesus, as a baby to live on the earth as God incarnate. This year we set up an immersive experience for all the children to take part in to help us reflect on the amazing story of the birth of the King of Kings in a Bethlehem stable.

Christmas Hall Art

Children arrived at school to find the hall decorated for the festive season. Our regular display boards had been replaced with their fantastic artwork based on the retelling of the Nativity Story. 👑 🎄✨
