Turton and Edgworth Church of England Methodist Primary School

Religious Education

We focus on teaching Christianity during RE lessons and worship but we also teach children about other faiths.

We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions.

Our aim is to enable children to have an informed and thoughtful account of Christianity and show an informed and respectful attitutude towards other world religions. We will encourage our children to reflect critically and responsibly on their own spiritual, philosophical and ethical convictions.

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