At Stoke, we encourage pupils to engage in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.


We follow the Coventry Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. This agreed syllabus enables pupils to study beliefs, teachings and ways of living, and is structured so that they can explore a range of responses to questions of identity, meaning, purpose, values and commitments. In the process they can examine and reflect upon their own ideas and values.


The principle aims of our RE curriculum are to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can identify, describe, explain and analyse beliefs and concepts in the context of living religions, using appropriate vocabulary
  • Examine and explain how and why people express their beliefs in diverse ways
  • Evaluate, reflect on and enquire into key concepts and questions studied, responding thoughtfully and creatively
  • Appreciate and appraise the significance of different ways of life and ways of expressing meaning
