Richard Bonington Primary and Nursery SchoolTogether,'we make a difference'


At Richard Bonington we learn the stories, practices and beliefs from many of faiths around the world. We also learn from those that follow no faith or practice Humanism.

In order to teach our children we use the Nottinghamshire SACRE scheme of work complimented by assemblies, celebration of festivals, visitors and trips to local places of worship.

Why teach RE?


Religious education (RE) makes a significant contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development. It also plays a key role in promoting social cohesion and the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society.

What is SACRE?

SACRE stands for Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education. Following the 1988 Education Act, when religious education was confirmed as a compulsory part of the curriculum, it became a statutory requirement for every Local Education Authority (LEA) to appoint a SACRE. Nottingham City SACRE is a member of the National Association of SACRE.
