Religious Education is a stimulating and an important part of the curriculum at Meriden CE Primary School where it has a particularly significant part to play in the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of our children.
Although Christianity has a central place in the curriculum, in keeping with our historic foundation and strong Christian ethos, it is important in our changing society that children learn to understand, appreciate and respect the traditions, beliefs and practices of other faiths; and to respect the rights of others who hold different beliefs from their own. Our children are encouraged to share their own experiences with others and to develop their understanding of and sensitivity towards those of other faiths and those of no faith.
Typical lessons are engaging and stimulating where teachers endeavour to cater for the range of learning styles. The school has active links with the Diocese of Coventry and our Meriden Parish Church of St. Laurence where a number of school services and learning experiences take place during the year, including, the annual End of Year Leavers Service, Christingle, Harvest and Easter.
