Religious Education

We are proud of the diversity that makes up Medlock Primary School. Our school reflects the multi-cultural community of Ardwick.

We teach the world’s major religions: Christianity, Sikhism, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism. Our aim is that our children develop a respect for other people’s beliefs and gain a broad understanding of the world’s religions.

RE is taught in class and assemblies, where the children have a chance to experience other people’s cultures and faith, whilst sharing and celebrating their own knowledge and beliefs.

RE is a compulsory subject, but parents have the right to withdraw their child and should see the Head of School to discuss the issue.
