Kimpton Primary School

Achieving today; ready for tomorrow.


We want children at Kimpton to be educated about the different religions of the world. However, with an ever-growing percentage of the population identifying as non-religious, we believe that teaching these religions through the lens of how followers view the world is vital in getting our children ready for tomorrow.

Our children come with us on a journey to become global citizens, who can be understanding and challenging towards the worldviews of those around them, as well as their own worldviews. We believe that learning about religions provides an opportunity for our children to develop respect for all, through questioning the beliefs of themselves and others.

R.E. at Kimpton covers eight main areas: beliefs and practices, sources of wisdom, symbols and actions, prayer, worship and reflection, identity and belonging, ultimate questions, human responsibility and values, and justice and fairness.
