In RE we discuss the values and celebrations of faiths and cultures in our diverse world. We enjoy bringing these festivals to life by exploring them through craft and other hands on activities. We follow the North Yorkshire Syllabus for RE, which covers a multitude of faiths and beliefs. The pupils of Hovingham CE have worship each week in either the village church. These sessions are organised and run by our local community. At St Hilda’s, the vicar leads worship in schools most weeks.


  • All children are actively encouraged to appreciate beliefs from all aspects of life
  • To engage all children in the values of the school and, in turn, in their local community.
  • To improve the children’s understanding of the wider world, how others live and worship and to build tolerance and knowledge of our diverse nation and the world.


  • Our core values will be discussed and expanded upon as these are used as a foundation from which to teach all RE.
  • All classes follow the updated NYCC RE scheme
  • Provision will be made for other faiths followed in school when required
  • External trips to experience a faith first hand
  • Children are actively encouraged to help others and become involved in fundraising.



  • Children receive a grounding in the school’s values for life, British values and learn to develop their own opinions and beliefs (and expect that these will be respected).
  • Children learn that other people may have different opinion and faiths to their own, but that these are important to them and should be respected also.
  • Children feel part of the community.
  • The diverse faiths of the world are discovered and respected giving the children a broader view of the cultural capital in which we live today.
