RE

 

The principal aim of RE in Derbyshire schools is to enable pupils to participate in an on-going search for wisdom, through exploring questions raised by human experience and answers offered by the religions and beliefs of the people of Derbyshire so as to promote their personal development.

At Hathersage St. Michael's CE (A) Primary School, we follow The Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education which is based on three broad themes.

Themes: Believing, Expressing, Living
