Religious education (RE) should make a major contribution to the education of children and young people. At its best, it is intellectually challenging and personally enriching. It helps young people develop beliefs and values, and promotes the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society. It fosters civilised debate and reasoned argument, and helps pupils to understand the place of religion and belief in the modern world. Religious Education Realising the Potential - Ofsted 2013

In Year One Children learn about and through Christianity.

In Year Two the children further develop understanding and knowledge of Christianity and also begin to compare this to Buddhism.
