Downside Primary School

 Religious Education


At Downside Primary School, Religious Education is delivered through the agreed Luton syllabus. This is particularly important at Downside as we are a multi-cultural community and the religious makeup of this community is very varied.

Our RE curriculum is designed to develop individual pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of contemporary, multicultural society. Through our curriculum, pupils explore a broad range of religions which promotes respect, morality and open-mindedness towards others with different beliefs and faiths within the local community, including those who do not believe in a god.

 They also learn the value and significance of the ‘Golden Rule’, a concept followed by atheists and people of different faiths, which ultimately prepares Downside children to be exemplary citizens in the wider world.
