We follow the Essex Agreed Syllabus – ‘exploRE’, which reflects the fact that religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking into account the teachings and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain: Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism.
RE provides opportunities to promote fundamental British values, defined as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different beliefs.
R.E. at John Ray Infant School makes a significant contribution to a number of other areas of school life including:
* The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
* School ethos e.g. Code of Conduct and Core Values
During the year we have a Multicultural Week, where we celebrate the cultures, beliefs and traditions of the children in our school. At Christmas we go to St Michael’s Church for a Christmas Concert.
