Religious Education


Religious Education provides young people with the opportunities to learn about, discuss, evaluate and learn from religious beliefs, practices and values.

Through Religious Education young people are able to develop a positive sense of themselves and their beliefs, along with a respect for the beliefs and values of others.

The curriculum for Religious Education is defined by the Department of Education and the four main Christian Churches in Northern Ireland in the Core Syllabus. It also has a role to play within the context of the revised curriculum through presenting young people with chances to develop their personal understanding and enhance their spiritual and ethical awareness.

Children receive curriculum lessons and assemblies twice weekly. We regularly have  ministers and other visitors to our assemblies.
