Religious Education


Our commitment to the Christian principles of love, care and respect for others is the golden thread which runs through our school ethos. As a church school we believe that RE plays a vital role in the development of the whole child within the context of a Christian family, contributing towards their spiritual, moral and cultural awareness in terms of knowledge, skills and understanding.

Middleforth Church of England Primary School is designated a voluntary controlled (VC) Church of England primary school. We follow the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education Syllabus for Church Primary Schools 2013.  RE teaching at Middleforth fulfils the Statement of Entitlement as issued by the Church of England Education Office, issued June 2016.

Blackburn Diocese Board of Education

The Board of Education interprets the Church’s mission to children and young people through education, develops strategies to carry out that mission, and ensures that, through its officers, these strategies are translated into action.  The Board promotes understanding of the nature and importance of that mission in the diocese and more widely, and celebrates and champions it as an outworking of God’s love for his people.
