Religious Education at St Martin's

St Martin's ETHOS, VALUES, SIAMS REPORT website page link>>

As required by the 1988 Education Reform Act, Religious Education is taught in accordance with the North Somerset Agreed Syllabus, Awareness, Mystery and Value (AMV). Children are given the opportunity to learn about the six major religions of the world with the emphasis on Christianity. As a Church School, we celebrate our Christian Values which permeate across all aspects of school life. During our recent SIAMS inspection we were very pleased to receive a 'Good' for our delivery of Religious Education, Spirituality and Collective Worship.  We also applied for an RE Quality Mark and were proud to receive a 'Silver Award'.  We are proud of our links to St Martin’s Church and other churches in the local area. We celebrate the Christian Festivals throughout the year.  


Our Christian Values are investigated during Assembly and RE lessons, these are closely linked to our School Vision.


Our aims are to:

  • increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major religions
  • reflect the spiritual and moral framework of a caring community
  • enable pupils to become increasingly aware of their own developing spirituality
  • develop an understanding of what it is like to be a practising believer
  • respect the beliefs children experience within the home
  • develop pupils’ respect for the beliefs and values of others within our multi-cultural society.


As a school we deliver lessons which deliver our pupils spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC) in a holistic way throughout the school day.  


Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education. If you wish to discuss this or any aspect of our Religious Education policy, please contact the Headteacher.
