Curriculum intent statement

At All Saints' and St Richard's CE Primary we strive to provide an environment where pupils are able to explore challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, themselves and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

Through developing the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, and principal religions, religious traditions and other world religions they explore views that offer answers to these big questions. The RE Curriculum provides opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development alongside enhancing pupils’ awareness and understanding of religions and beliefs, teachings and practices and looks the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.

Pupils develop their sense of identity and belonging enabling them to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a pluralistic society and within a global community. Religious Education has an important role in preparing pupils for adult life, employment and lifelong learning.


At ASSR we use the East Sussex agreed syllabus for teaching principle world religions across EYFS, KS1 and KS2.

We use the Understanding Christianity programme for the Christianity units taught in every year group.
