At Brookland Infant & Nursery School, we value the wide variety of faith backgrounds of our children and also those of none.

Our vision is to provide children with a range of opportunities and experiences in Religious Education (R.E.) so they develop a broad understanding of the subject. They will learn about the beliefs and traditions of different religious communities to help prepare our children for life in modern Britain.

We provide learning opportunities to encourage curiosity, develop understanding and instil the tolerance needed to thrive in our diverse community. This promotes British Values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development and our own Brookland Values.


At Brookland Infants, we follow the Barnet Locally Agreed Syllabus 2019 for R.E.


The aim of Religious Education in the Agreed Syllabus in Barnet is to enable students to explore the nature of religion and fundamental questions of human experience.

Religious Education should therefore help pupils to:

  • develop and extend knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other world faiths, and of ethical beliefs
  • develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities and societies
  • enhance and reflect on their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • grow in confidence in their own faith and respect those with a faith different from their own
  • develop a positive attitude to living in a religiously diverse society
  • develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues.


At Brookland Infant and Nursery School all our children are encouraged to value themselves and their peers. Through learning about life events and celebrations, children can share their own experiences and be enriched by those of others.
