St John's CE (C) Primary School

Life in all its fullness'




Religious Education has a significant role for the development for the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development at St John's and forms an integral part of our curriculum.

Children gain an understanding of learning about religion and learning from religion, by making links and comparing between believing in a faith, belonging to a faith and behaving in a way that is required by the teachings of different religions. The children also have opportunities to make their own responses and reflections based on what they have learned.


At St John’s we follow the Staffordshire Diocese Curriculum and also make use of the schemes: Primary RE and Understanding Christianity.


The parish clergy are actively involved in the life of the school, leading some Acts of Worship and working with staff in R.E lessons.  Collective Worships take place each day for all children with some being prepared by the children themselves.
