Christian Distinctiveness

The Vision of Barcombe CE Primary School

A small and mighty school where everyone can flourish in the heart of the community.

At Barcombe, we learn to live wisely and to treat everyone with dignity through the teachings of Jesus Christ. We focus on Christian values to help us learn to be good members of our school and wider community, guiding us to help create a better world.


RE syllabus
We follow the East Sussex Agreed Syllabus for RE. Faith and Belief in the 21st Century is used to inform planning for RE teachers. The Emmanuel Project is used as an additional support. This covers Christianity, other major world religions and non-religious aspects of life.
Our intent is for our pupils to become religiously literate or develop their existing religious literacy: the ability to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religions and beliefs.
