Religious Education

At Dorothy Barley Infant School, we follow the Barking & Dagenham agreed syllabus to support the learning and teaching of Religious Education (RE).


RE is delivered in an informative and fun way throughout our School. RE is extremely important as it brings our children and their families together to learn and share our different religious backgrounds to develop a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

At Dorothy Barley Infant School we celebrate diversity; our children are respectful of others and come together to feel a sense a belonging. We learn about different religions throughout the school journey, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Judaism. We take a look at each religion to learn about how followers worship, where they worship, what is celebrated (including festivals), symbols and signs, dress and traditional stories, including information for our International Schools work. In addition, we look at Rights & Responsibilities as part of our Rights Respecting School work, people who changed the world, how we can express faith through the arts and moral values.
