As All Saints is a Voluntary Aided (VA) Church of England school, the Governing Body is responsible for the RE curriculum and governors work with the Head Teacher and staff to agree this. Our curriculum teaches children about religion and from religion.
We aim to enable children to:
- develop their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith
- apply an understanding of Christianity to help them make reasoned choices and informed responses to issues and moral choices they are presented with
- develop their knowledge and understanding of other religions and the ability to engage with other faiths
- apply an understanding of religion to develop sensitivity and respect towards all people
- develop an ability to reflect on issues of truth, faith and belief.
RE may be taught as a discrete subject or be linked to another aspect of learning, such as Art or Drama. Children visit All Saints Church and other places of worship to support their learning. We also sometimes invite visitors to the school to enrich children’s RE learning opportunities.

The Story of Noah
People were behaving badly and they stopped teaching children about God. God got very angry and wanted to flood the earth, but he wanted one man to live and that man was named Noah.
God told Noah to build a big boat called an ark. He gave Noah the plan to make the ark and told him to bring two of each animal onto it. Noah had done what God told him to and God began the flood. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights.
One day Noah sent out a raven but it didn’t come back. Seven days later he sent out a dove. The first day he sent out the dove it found nothing but on the second day it found an olive branch.
The water was going down, dry land was coming, life was starting again.
A rainbow made by God shone and that was his promise never to flood the earth again. The promise was in the rainbow.
