Religious Education

Religious Education at Garfield Primary


At Garfield, we celebrate the many faiths and the multi- cultural diversity of all our pupils. As a multi- faith school we encourage tolerance and respect for each other. We celebrate the festivals of Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Easter and Eid -ul- Fitr where all the classes share in the excitement, gaining knowledge and understanding through participation. We reach out to our community each Harvest with donations of food to the local community, local charities and Enfield Food Bank,

In our R.E. lessons, we follow The Enfield Agreed Syllabus which guides our learning through exploring and making connections between different faiths. This gives our children a clear understanding of the major faiths and a sound basis of tolerance, respect and knowledge to guide them in their future. We take part in World Religion Day where all our classes celebrate their beliefs and find out more about each other’s faiths.

Every half term, there is a specific religious focus, for example, in the first half of the Autumn term, the whole school studies Judaism.  Each year group looks at a different aspect of this faith.  Here is the content of our RE curriculum:

Autumn 1: Judaism

Autumn 2: Hinduism

Spring 1: Buddhism

Spring 2: Christianity

Summer 1: Sikhism

Summer 2: Islam
