Chestnuts is a diverse community with with 24 different religions celebrated and 40 different languages spoken across our school. Therefore the teaching of religious education is exceptionally important to us. We want children to grow up understanding different beliefs and making decisions about their own beliefs from a point of knowledge rather than ignorance. As part of Religious education we will take children on trips to different places of worship.
We teach RE through RE days, once a half term. Each class focuses on a religion and this is taught throughout the school. We invite in guests from our local community to support these special days.
