St John's C of E Middle School Academy


At St. John's Church of England Middle School, Religious Education is a vital part of the curriculum. It seeks to enable pupils to acquire a substantial body of knowledge and depth of understanding about Christianity and other religious faiths. This educational foundation should lead pupils to become aware of their own critically formed beliefs, values and attitudes so that in religious matters they are able to make informed judgements. At St John's RE is an integral part of the Spritual and Social Education (SSE) Department.

Aims of Religious Education
