Information for Parents

We have compiled a special PDF document for parents which you can view and download

Discovery RE® is the culmination of over 30 years’ experience in RE teaching and advisory work. It reinforces Religious Education’s statutory place in the primary curriculum.

We believe RE is about subject knowledge, critical/evaluative thinking and personal spiritual development.

Discovery RE gives teachers a solid structure for delivering a wide range of subject content covering 6 of the world’s principal religions. It guides teachers through the enquiry process, starting in the children’s experience, venturing into the world of religion and back into the child’s map of the world.

The world our children live in is full of beauty but also full of confusion. Discovery RE can equip and empower children to make sense of it.
