RE Curriculum

The aim of R.E. is to support children in their development of their own beliefs, values and attitudes and also their undertaking of religious beliefs and practices in Britain today.

We use the Wigan Agreed Syllabus for R.E.   Each Education Authority has their own syllabus for Religious Education which takes into account the various religions represented in their area.  Different groups of people in Wigan meet periodically to develop an agreed syllabus and this forms the basis of R.E. teaching at Abram Bryn Gates.
