Eastgate Academy Religious Education

Ellen Stratton


At Eastgate Academy, we follow the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus (2019). Our Religious Education curriculum is balanced and broadly based, promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society. Our curriculum also prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Norfolk Agreed Syllabus (2019)

High-quality RE will support pupils’ religious literacy. In the context of the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus (2019), being religiously literate means that pupils will have the ability to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religion and world views. Pupils will be able to make sense of religion and world views around them and begin to understand the complex world in which they live. RE is primarily about enabling pupils to become free thinking, critical participants of public discourse, who can make academically informed judgements about important matters of religion and belief which shape the global landscape.

• To gain and deploy skills rooted in theology, philosophy and the human/social sciences engaging critically with religious and non-religious world views.
