Confidence, respect and a love of learning

Religious Education

At Bonner Primary School, Religious Education topics are taught in accordance with the Tower Hamlets Agreed Syllabus (2022-2027). This has been developed in consultation with the borough's communities of religion and belief, school staff and RE Today Services. A summary of this syllabus can be found here.

We explicitly teach about four of the six main world faiths (Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism) as well as discussing other non-religious world views, such as Atheism and Humanism. 

Curriculum Vision for RE

RE at Bonner Primary School are lessons that equip children to be confident and respectful global citizens. Not just knowing what each religion entails, but exploring it through empathy and enriching experiences. At our school, we recognise that high-quality religious education is central to our children growing up in a culturally diverse society.
We aim to:

  • Inspire, motivate and challenge all of our children;
  • Create a longstanding love of learning;
  • Foster confident, co-operative, independent learners;
  • Encourage all of our children to embrace diversity and to value one another equally;
  • Equip all of our children with the necessary skills to take them forward on their educational journey.

We are committed to:

  • Offering a creative, diverse and innovative curriculum;
  • Providing an inclusive learning environment, fostering mutual respect, tolerance and teamwork;
  • Ensuring consistency of approach as one school across two sites;
  • Being community-focussed, working closely with parents, other schools and local agencies;
  • Achieving and maintaining the highest standards in all areas of teaching and learning.
