In a diverse society, religious education (RE) is important for children’s personal and academic development. It helps children to empathise, respect others and explore deep human concepts.

Religious Education is unique in the school curriculum in that it is neither a core subject nor a foundation subject but the 1988 Education Act states “Religious Education has equal standing in relation to core subjects of the National Curriculum in that it is compulsory for all registered pupil”.

At Bungay we have 2 RE days every half term where we use Cornerstones ‘Love to celebrate’ projects which cover the six major world religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism and teach the children about a significant religious festival or celebration.
