Religious Education

Why is RE important at Bredbury St Mark’s?

  • As a Church of England School, we believe that RE is an important core curriculum subject and is embedded in our school beliefs and values through our Christian Ethos.
  • Our school motto – “Dream Big” reflects our vision that is ‘With God all things are possible’ Matthew 19:26. Our Christian Ethos is at the centre of everything we do and we help the children to grow and develop through our 6 Main Values: Love, Hope, Forgiveness, Friendship, Perseverance and Courage.
  • It is important for all Children to know they are cared for and loved and can achieve anything they want to in life with the belief and support of God and the staff at Bredbury St Mark’s.
  • Through RE, our children are able to deepen their understanding of religions and theological understanding, using the knowledge they have learnt to improve and enrich their own lives through the choices they make.


At Bredbury St Mark’s we use the Chester Diocesan Scheme of work and supplement and enhance it through the use of the Understanding Christianity resource.
