At Brookfield Junior Academy Religious Education (R.E) is taught throughout school and is based upon the Rotherham Agreed Syllabus for RE. within the National Curriculum.


The teaching of RE allows our pupils to learn about the world around them and encourages them ask and answer challenging questions. Teaching will equip our pupils with knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and world views, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identity. It will cultivate their spiritual, moral social and cultural development. Our British Values are important to us and being good citizens means understanding other cultures and their beliefs.

All staff and children meet for daily worship. This can be in a variety of forms including class stories and Key Stage or whole school assemblies. 

The content of our assemblies encourages a positive ethos of tolerance, caring and understanding for all. Assemblies are used to reinforce and develop school standards.

At Brookfield Junior Academy we will also celebrate different religious festivals. This may include special assemblies, creative activities, visits and visitors and themed days and weeks.

The R.E Festivals document is a calendar of religious festivals categorised by religion.
