Religious Education

Differences were meant, not to divide, but to enrich - J H Oldham 


Woodlands Primary Academy is an increasingly diverse school community in a culturally diverse town. We will ensure children learn about a range of cultures and faiths, enabling them to have respect and tolerance for all. We aim to provide high quality Religious Education to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and allow the children to understand the concept of diversity.


At Woodlands, we work to the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Oldham.

The Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) advises on Oldham’s agreed syllabus for Religious Education, publishes an annual report, conducts regular meetings, monitors the quality and provision of Religious Education in all maintained and voluntary controlled schools and receives complaints in relation to Religious Education and collective worship.
