Religious Education


Religious Education at Hove Junior School

At Hove Junior School, Religious Education is taught for the equivalent of an hour a week.   We follow the Brighton & Hove Agreed Syllabus for RE. 

Throughout their time at Hove Juniors, the children enjoy learning about different aspects of belief from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Humanism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.   Each unit of work follows an enquiry based approach where the children learn about core beliefs, explain what religious writing and art means and examine how beliefs make a difference to how people live their lives.   Children are encouraged to develop their own responses and ideas in lessons while gaining insights into both local and global religious and non-religious communities.  

To enhance Religious Education at Hove Juniors, we may invite visitors form different faiths into school or visit local places of worship.  If you feel you could contribute to our Religious Education learning journey, please let us know
