R.E. Overview


Newburgh C.E. School is a vibrant church school with Christian values at its heart. The distinctive Christian ethos permeates all aspects of school life and has an outstanding impact on pupils' personal development.


The personal development is seen through the established strengths of:


  • The focus on Christian Values which leads to outstanding spiritual, moral and academic development of all pupils.
  • The outstanding relationships within the school family, based on Christian love and care for each individual.
  • The quality of relationships with parents and the positive Christian impact the school has in the wider community.
  • The schools procedures for evaluating itself as a church school.
  • The excellent and vibrant quality of worship which makes a significant impact on pupils' spiritual development.

The school's Christian character nourishes, encourages and challenges the spiritual and cultural development of the whole school community. This is particularly shown by the collective acts of worship which lie at the heart of school life for all staff, pupils and parents alike.


As a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School, our Religious Education curriculum is based on the syllabus written by Liverpool Diocesan Board of Education (Questful R.E.) supported by the Understanding Christianity resource. As a Christian school, our pupils are taught about other world faiths as part of the multi-faith society in which we live.


Worship lies at the very heart of our school community. Worship is led by the vicar of the parish, staff and pupils. Our school commitment to the Belong Project has also created a Worship Family which currently meets termly to provide families with the opportunity to worship together at the end of a school day.
