Religious Education


All children learn about and from religion to understand and respect the diverse world around them.

We aim to support our Cherry Tree children to become tolerant, reflective young people with the knowledge and awareness of religions and world views. We follow the Discovery RE scheme of work, which is enquiry-based and covers the 6 principal world faiths in a progressive way from Early Years to Year 6. In the Early Years, the learning is closely matched to Development Matters to contribute meaningfully to your child’s holistic development. Throughout all the enquiries, the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is carefully considered. We work closely with the Watford Schools Trust, which is a local Christian charity and other religious leaders in the local community.
