Religious Education 

At Cheam Park Farm, we offer a broad and rich RE curriculum to allow children to develop a holistic understanding of the religions that make up the UK landscape. We provide a  high quality, coherent and progressive experience of the subject where children have the opportunity to explore a range of religions and worldviews, as well as have the chance to reflect on their own views and beliefs. 

Jigsaw RE forms the foundation of our vibrant Religious Education program at Cheam Park Farm. This comprehensive scheme encourages curiosity, respect, and a deeper understanding of diverse faiths and worldviews. Through engaging lessons, discussions, and activities, Jigsaw RE helps students explore their own beliefs and values, fostering a sense of personal identity within a global community. We believe Jigsaw RE enriches our students' understanding of the world, promoting empathy, kindness, and open-mindedness.

The children are encouraged to think deeply and speak confidently about their wellbeing, moral and cultural development for the society in which they live. The RE curriculum aims to promote inquisitive minds, respect, tolerance and understanding for all those around them including themselves. 

SMSC, personal growth, wellbeing and community cohesion are featured throughout each unit and are there to ensure opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect on and relate their learning in RE to their own experiences. The intent is to make sure that children understand the relevance of RE in today's modern world.

The Sutton Agreed Syllabus

Although RE is a statutory requirement for all schools, it isn’t part of the national curriculum. SACRE agrees the RE syllabus used in maintained Sutton schools and holds a conference to review the syllabus every five years.
