RE

The syllabus for R.E. at Northmead is based on Surrey’s " The Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Surrey's Schools 2017-2022"

Within the Surrey Agreed Syllabus, learning in RE is divided into two distinct but complementary areas: knowledge and understanding and expressing ideas, beliefs and insights.

As part of their studies children are taken to some of the most interesting religious buildings and sites locally, including Emmanuel Church and Guildford Cathedral.
