Religous Education

At Bridgewater Park Primary School, we follow the Halton Schools Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education – The Lancashire Agreed Syllabus. 

As well as developing a knowledge and understanding of Christianity, Religious Education is concerned with moral and spiritual development and an understanding of all religions. Children are given opportunities to think about religious ideas, behaviour, and attitudes, as well as personal qualities such as consideration, bravery, loyalty, and truthfulness. Children are not only taught about different faiths, they are given opportunities to reflect on their own beliefs and appreciate different viewpoints of others. We foster links with our local church (St Mary's) and have regular class assemblies led by the vicar. .
