Understanding Christianity


We have actively chosen to use this substantial resource that supports the teaching of Christianity in Religious Education.


The key purpose of this project is to help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.


'We aim to see pupils leave school with a coherent understanding of Christian belief and practice. Pupils from 4-14 explore the significant theological concepts within Christianity as part of developing their wider religious, theological and cultural literacy.

We seek to support teachers in developing their own knowledge and understanding of Christianity theology to be able to teach with confidence.'
