Religious Education provides young people with the opportunities to learn about, discuss, evaluate and learn from religious beliefs, practices and values. Through Religious Education young people are able to develop a positive sense of themselves and their beliefs, along with a respect for the beliefs and values of others.


Religious Education is defined by the Department of Education and the four main Christian Churches in Northern Ireland. It also has a role to play within the context of the revised curriculum through presenting young people with chances to develop their personal understanding and enhance their spiritual and ethical awareness.


In Mossley Primary School, core Christian values run through everything we do. Children learn stories from the Bible in both assemblies and through the classroom teaching of our staff. They have the opportunities to ask questions, perform dramas and engage in other activities to help bring the stories to life.
