The RECD does not prescribe how much of the curriculum ought to be devoted to the teaching of other religions, however it is clearly an expectation that it should happen in every key stage.


During the Autumn term, children in all year groups will learn about Judaism, with each focusing on a different theme. Therefore, it is hoped that by the time the come to leave primary education at Blessed Sacrament, they will have a firm understanding of and appreciation towards another major world faith.
