Religious Education

We study Religious Education at The Meadows because it helps us to explore beliefs and to develop a better understanding of others.

We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for the teaching of RE, and there is a balance between learning about belief and learning from others. Collective worship also takes place each day. 

Collective Worship

Children are given opportunities to reflect and to think about key values and morals, often through the use of stories, images or music. Collective worship takes place during assembly each day.


During the autumn term, assembly time takes place in individual classrooms. The Governors have agreed that, in accordance with the law, withdrawal from collective worship, i.e. school assemblies and religious education lessons, should only take place as a result of a request by a child's parents and for this to take place only after we have had an opportunity to discuss the reasons with the parents concerned.

You can download a copy of the entire Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education below. At The Meadows, we use the structure and sequence set out in order to ensure that there is a progression in teaching and learning.
