Religious Education

At Balksbury Federation, our religious education curriculum gives our children a broad understanding of world religions. We follow Hampshire County Council’s syllabus called ‘The Living Difference lV'. It builds on the approach to religious education, enriched by philosophical and theological enquiry, as well as current research. The curriculum is predominantly Christian in focus but each key stage focuses on other world religions.
