Turton and Edgworth Church of England Methodist Primary School

Religious Education

We focus on teaching Christianity during RE lessons and assembly but we also teach children about other faiths. Our general approach is to encourage children to learn about religions and also to learn through religions. We like to acknowledge and celebrate major religious festivals throughout the year including the Hindu festivals of Diwali and Holi, the Jewish festivals of Hannukah and Passover and Buddists celebration of Wesak.

We are very lucky to be linked to three local churches:

  • Edgworth Methodist Church
  • St Anne's Church Chapeltown
  • St James' Church

To find out more about what we teach during Religious Education (RE) please read our RE Policy.
