Religious Education at Birchwood is at the very heart of the curriculum and reflects our whole school Christian values.

Learning together, through faith, fun and friendship.

“Show me your ways Lord, teach me your paths.” Psalm 25:4

In our school, Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection. Religious Education is a core subject within our school. The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.


At Birchwood the RE syllabus is a revision of ‘Questful RE’ the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education RE syllabus 2017. Building on the foundation of the 2007, 2013 and 2017 syllabuses Questful have updated and redesigned the content, bringing it in line with current best practice and pedagogical strategies.

Rather than simply acquiring factual information quality RE leads to wisdom, knowledge and understanding. By embracing the explicit teaching of Christian concepts and God’s big salvation story, it is hoped that the content of this syllabus will give pupils a deeper understanding of Christianity. In addition, through the exploration of all major World Faiths and discussion of non-religious worldviews pupil’s will gain knowledge and understanding that will equip them to encounter life’s experiences in our world today and in the future.
