There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve:

The fear of failure.

‘Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups’

UN Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26


These days, issues of religion and belief frequently top the news agenda and RE helps children and young people to make sense of them. At Anfield Road, we believe that RE encourages children growing up in a diverse society to understand the varied views and opinions of people whose beliefs and values differ from their own, promoting not just tolerance but genuine understanding and respect for other people. RE provides space for children to reflect on their own ideas and develop their thoughts about questions of meaning. 


RE at Anfield Road Primary fosters an understanding of the world in its diversity and richness; it helps face difference, conflict and doubt. RE is to do with helping our children to grow by encountering, and increasingly, understanding the religious traditions of humankind. RE teaches children to develop the positive attitudes of tolerance, sensitivity and respect. RE actively promotes the values of truth, justice, respect for all and care of the environment.


At Anfield Road, we follow the Liverpool Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2020-20215. We believe that the principle of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own. 


"RE explores big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what differences this makes to how they live so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living,"


The three aims of the syllabus are for the children to be able to: 


  • Know about and understand a range of religions and world views
  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and world views
  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews


There are three stands in the implementation


  • Believing- Religious beliefs, teachings, sources, questions of meaning purpose and truth
  • Living- Practices and ways of living, questions of values and commitments 
  • Expressing- Religious forms of expression; questions of identity, diversity and belonging 


Each unit has a key question, e.g. What does it mean to belong to a faith community? or What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britain today? 


We are proud of the opportunities we give to our children to visit several places of worship over the course of their time at school. Visits and visitors which currently support RE in school include:


  • Al- Rahma Mosque
  • Liverpool Ganesh Temple
  • Princes Road Synagogue
  • Holy Trinity Church
