Religious education at St Peter’s explores how individuals and communities make meaning and sense of their lives through the major religions of the world.
It enables pupils to know about, understand and respond to the important and ultimate questions of life. Religious education is taught in such a way that it inspires pupils to explore, develop and affirm their own faith and values and have respect for the faith, beliefs and values of others.
As a Church of England school the Governing Body have adopted the Oxfordshire Agreed Syllabus 2007. The Oxfordshire Agreed Syllabus reflects the requirements in the Education Acts of 1996, 1998 and 2002. These are that an agreed syllabus must reflect that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain.

"The impact of these Christian values is shown in the exemplary behaviour of the children and their growing empathy and compassion for others."
