Resources and Links

Useful R.E Websites

Have a look at the websites below to find out more about Religious Education and things to do with your child at home.  RE is an essential part of education for children as it opens their minds to different beliefs and mindsets that different people and cultures have around the world. It's extremely important for children to understand that their world-view is one of many. 

If any parents or children know of any great RE websites that we haven't put on here, please let us know so we can add them for others to use.
