Snaith Primary School believes that it is important for children to learn about the beliefs and values held by others. The acquisition of skills and attitudes developed through Religious Education are an important part of the development of children’s learning and are crucial for their lives as members of a multicultural society.
Religious Education in this school reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are mainly Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions.
Our Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education is the result of a collaborative partnership between Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (SACREs) of the four local authorities that comprise the Humberside region, following the similar joint E syllabuses of 1999, 2005 and 2010.

At Snaith Primary School our aim is to identify and develop children’s understanding and knowledge of their own and others beliefs, lifestyle and their practices in a diverse range of religions.
Through the teaching of Religious Education our aim is to equip, inspire and give opportunity to our children to explore different religious beliefs, values and traditions that are followed in our multi-cultural society. It is our aim to provide children with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions, to understand how and why religious beliefs shape life and behaviour and to ignite children’s curiosity to explore and find out more.
