Religious Education

At Dymchurch, we want our children to be exposed to different religions and cultures around the world as well as wider world views. 


We have recently started using the Jigsaw RE scheme of work. This is the most comprehensive RE programme for ages 3-12. With over 80+ enquiries encompassing all world views (religions), RE has never been so engaging, accessible and fun. Jigsaw RE encourages young minds to build awareness and understanding  of the world around them, different language and communication, and develop their broader personal, social and emotional skills.


Our staff have confidence in delivering and assessing Religious Education with Jigsaw’s three strand assessment system, harnessing personal development, substantive knowledge and disciplinary knowledge.


All of the topics and skills taught in Dymchurch's RE curriculum can be found in the documentation below.



Our Religious Education Intent:



  • In delivering outstanding Religious Education (RE) provision through the Jigsaw RE programme, our primary school aims to foster a deep understanding and appreciation of different religious beliefs, practices, and values.
  • To nurture the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development of our pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to respect and celebrate diversity, promote tolerance, and develop a strong sense of empathy towards others.
  • Our curriculum intent for Jigsaw RE is to provide a broad and balanced education that reflects the religious and cultural landscape of contemporary Britain.
  • By engaging with a variety of faith traditions and worldviews, we seek to promote curiosity, critical thinking, and open-mindedness among our pupils, enabling them to explore and make sense of the complex and interconnected nature of religion in society.
