Curriculum Intent

At Coxhoe Primary School, we believe that RE has an important role to play as part of a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum to which all pupils are entitled. It provides a positive context in which the diversity of cultures, beliefs and values in society can be celebrated and explored. RE provides an opportunity to promote an ethos of respect for others. Lessons ensure that our children grow to become tolerant and respectful citizens, who appreciate that everybody has their own set of beliefs and values and that these may differ from their own.

Easter gardens

Our Easter units are well underway with each year group focusing on a different aspect of Easter. Year 1 are looking at the big question 'What is the Easter story?'. To develop their understanding of the Easter story the children have made Easter gardens. They looked at each part and discussed how it relates to the Easter story. Children also showed their understanding in the provision areas.

Sikh Visitor

Children were given the opportunity to further develop their understanding of Sikhism. Jaswinder came into school and worked in classes from Year 1 to Year 6. Children took part in different activities and were able to ask questions. He also held two assemblies. He talked about Sikhism in general and also talked about the life of a Sikh. 



Anthony Dent came into school to do a workshop with year 5 and 6. He spoke about his faith and what his job entails. The children loved listening to his stories about when he was younger and how he became a Christian. Anthony spoke about God being a saviour and a protector and told some stories from the bible. The children thought he was very funny and thoroughly enjoyed his workshop. 

Inter-Faith Month October 2019

In October, we had our first Interfaith Month in school. Over the course of the month we had visitors from the Sikh, Muslim and Jewish religions, who led whole school assemblies and worked within classes. It was a great opportunity to be able to compare different religions. At the end of the month, we had a special Celebration Assembly. Each class brought along something to share and it was fantastic to see what the children had been doing. It was a lovely opportunity for them to share with each other some of what they had learnt.  

 “It was fun to learn about Sikhism and what Cloud thinks of it. We got to ask him questions and listen to him talk.” Class 11 child  

“There was a lady that came into our class and she was called Dr Turner. Dr Turner was talking about Islam, which was very interesting.” Class 10 child
