Satement of Entitlement of Religious Education

Underpinning the requirements for Religious Education in our church school, is the ‘Statement of Entitlement for Religious Education’ as set out by the Church of England Education Office. This document sets out the aims for developing religiously educated individuals. We aim to include these aims into our own teaching, so that children in our school are provided with quality teaching and learning.

Children are taught Religious Education in a cycle that supports the class structure of the school, and whilst we provide the children with a broad, rich and experiential curriculum, which is delivered through a thematic approach, we keep the integrity of Religious Education by teaching this discretely within themes. 

Please see the following link to read the Statement of Entitlement.


Religious Education is part of the basic curriculum for all registered pupils.  It has the same status as the Core Subjects of Mathematics, English and Science.  As a Church of England school we base our religious education firmly on the Christian faith and our school values, as well as instilling in  our children a respect and tolerance of other religious beliefs. 

The locally agreed syllabus is followed, a copy of which is available on request.  As part of the new curriculum Lakefield follows 'Understanding Christianity' as the main driver.

Parents have the right to exempt their child from religious education.  Those wishing to do so should notify the Head Teacher in writing.
