Religion and Worldviews


Let Your Light Shine

Nurturing the potential for an even brighter future

"You are the light of the world - like a town on a hill that cannot be hidden." Matthew 5v14


We believe, at Malvern Wells CE Primary School, that Religion and Worldviews is an integral part of a balanced and broad curriculum. It allows pupils to consider and respond to important questions, as well as pursuing their own spiritual development. We are here to give our pupils an excellent education with a rich and inspiring curriculum, at the same time providing nurture and care for their spiritual/emotional, moral, social and cultural wellbeing.


In Key Stage One, the customs and beliefs of Christianity and Judaism or Islam are studied and compared. 

In Key Stage Two, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and other non-religious worldviews are studied in a systematic way so that the children are able to understand the essential elements of these religions and beliefs.


A high quality Religion and Worldviews (R&W) curriculum is essential to meet the statutory requirement for all maintained schools to teach a broad and balanced curriculum. At the heart of R&W in church schools is the teaching of Christianity, rooted in the person and work of Jesus Christ. At Malvern Wells C of E school, we are a fully inclusive community and as such we actively encourage learning about other religions and world views, fostering respect for them.


By the time our pupils leave Malvern Wells, we would hope that they;

  • will value diversity and develop respect and tolerance for other faiths and beliefs.
  • enjoy Religion and Worldviews and appreciate its importance.
  • have a knowledge and understanding of the key concepts and worldviews studied which provides a secure base for learning in KS3 and beyond.
  • are able to describe how religious and non-religious beliefs are expressed in diverse ways.
  • have a knowledge and understanding of the significance and impact of beliefs and practices to believers, the community and societies around the world.
  • will know that beliefs can affect the values and actions of people.
  • will have the opportunity to make sense of their own worldview.
  • are able to use an enquiry based approach to their learning; asking challenging questions and debating these drawing on the sources used to back up their viewpoints. 
  • are able to consider ultimate questions and issues of truth and meaning in both religious and non-religious terms.
  • to be able to reflect on their thoughts, feelings and beliefs


Appropriate to age, at the end of the children’s time at Malvern Wells C of E School, we expect that all children are religiously literate and as a minimum are able to:


  • Give a theologically informed and thoughtful account of Christianity as a living and diverse faith;
  • Show an informed and respectful attitude to religions and world views in their search for God and meaning;
  • Engage in meaningful and informed dialogue with those of other faiths and none;
  • Reflect critically and responsibly on their own spiritual, philosophical and ethical convictions.
