Seaburn Dene Primary School is situated in a region with a fascinating religious history. Whist we ensure there is coverage of  Sunderland Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, from September 2017 we are adopting an enquiry approach to RE with each lesson beginning with a question.

 

We have links with many local churches including Seaburn New Church, Fulwell Methodist Church and St. Peter's C.E Church but we also take advantage of heritage rich sites such as Bede's World and Durham Cathedral.

 

To prepare us for the wider world, we also learn about the traditions and beliefs of religions other than Christianity and have visited Sikh Gurdwaras, Jewish synagogues and Buddhist Temples
