RE is an important curriculum subject. It is important in its own right and also makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and supports wider community cohesion. At Carpenters we use the Newham Agreed Syllabus for RE and it is taught over a week every half term. To see what your children will cover, click on the following link:

As a school we try to ensure that all children get the opportunity to visit each
of the places of worship over their time at our school. I have listed below the
details of each visit for you:
Parents/carers have a legal right to withdraw their child from Religious Education.
