Meadows Primary School

Religious Education

At The Meadows, we endeavour to create kind, caring and empathetic learners through our teaching of RE. By teaching about different beliefs and faiths, we aim to promote healthy discussions and debate in order the deepen children’s understanding of themselves, their peers and the world around them. 

Religious Education at The Meadows follows the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for RE and is designed to promote children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
