Religious Education

Birkdale is a Christian School and as such Religious Education forms part of the basic curriculum. It is a compulsory subject at all key stages and encourages pupils’ spiritual and moral development. We are, however, sensitive towards pupils own beliefs and the faith commitment of their families. It is recognised that pupils are drawn from, and live in a multi-cultural society in which many different views are evident. Respect for and sensitivity towards those with different views is encouraged.

The RE curriculum portrays a positive view of religion in general and Christianity in particular. The programme of study is divided into several themes as follows:

The Bible, Old Testament, Advent, Christmas, New Testament, Easter, Pentecost, The Early Church, The Church Today and Christianity in Action.

Each year group will look at material from each of these areas. During each unit pupils will learn about Christianity and learn from Christianity.
