New Harrow Agreed Syllabus - Widening Diversity

Our Vision: At Cannon Lane, we aim to develop children’s knowledge and understanding about the major world faiths, including Jainism, Bah’ai, Zoroastrianism and Humanism. 




 By equipping children with the confidence to address some of the most crucial questions about religion, they will have the opportunity to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental concepts addressed by people and enhance their curiosity about different belief systems.



The Religious Education curriculum at Cannon Lane follows the Harrow Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.


  • Children will be encouraged to develop a sound knowledge of different religions, especially those that are the main faiths of children within our school.
  • They will be motivated to reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding.
  • We will children learn from religions as well as about religions and make links to begin to understand the relevance and importance of the major world religions.
  • Have opportunities to discover new beliefs systems and how they compare to those which are embedded in society e.g. Humanism.
  • Staff receive support and CPD for a designated R.E Lead to help improve standards across the subject.

Curriculum overview:

We teach R.E. creatively and wherever possible take a practical approach to engage children in hands on learning, through experiential learning – exploring artefacts, visiting places of worship and celebrating festivals. We teach in this way to ensure that our children develop transferable skills that link to learning across the range of primary subjects:

Cultural Capital:

Our Religious Education curriculum is designed to foster children with an inquisitive mindset to challenge and understand their immediate environment and the wider world. It provides children with essential knowledge about world religions and local communities, so that they are global citizens.   Our RE syllabus covers a wide range of topics that link to religious and non-religious views that allow children to broaden their learning about different belief systems.  It also provides children with opportunities to develop their critical and reflective thinking which will help to inform their own choices in life, through visits to places of worship and visitors coming to our school to talk about different values.
