At Cumnor CE School we believe that Religious Education, together with the strong values and  Christian ethos of our school, should help to prepare the children for later life. We welcome children of many different cultures and faiths. At Cumnor CE Primary School, RE plays an important role in expressing the Christian vision of the school.

RE reflects the ethos and values that are held and promotes understanding of people of all faiths and none. RE has the same high status as any other subject and contributes to the overall development of our pupils from all backgrounds and traditions. While offering  a broad range of religious studies as befits our place in an increasingly multi-cultural society, we also acknowledge that we live in a predominantly Christian country, and therefore the study of Christianity is covered from Foundation Stage through to Year 6. The children also have the opportunity to study Islam, Judaism and Hinduism through a carefully structured Programme of Study over the two Key Stages. In keeping with our school’s fundamental values, respect, tolerance and understanding of the beliefs of others plays a key role in our religious teaching.

Part of our role as a Church of England school is to foster and encourage a close link with our local church of St. Michael’s. The whole school community, including parents, enjoy attending services for Harvest, Christmas, Easter and the Leavers at the end of the school year.
