Religious Education

At Ightham Primary School, we follow the agreed Kent Syllabus for RE. Our curriculum overview can be downloaded below:

Ightham Primary School has very close links with St Peter's Church. Volunteers from St Peter's Church come into school approximately once every three weeks to lead an assembly called Open The Book. In these assemblies, the children learn about a Bible story. Older children in the school are also often invited to act as part of these assemblies. Rev. Tim Hatwell also comes into school to lead an assembly once every two weeks.

Our Key Stage 2 Harvest, Christmas and Easter services are held every year in St Peter's Church.

We also have a link with Bromley Synagogue who visit Ightham every year.


PSHE is taught both explicitly and across the curriculum. Our PSHE curriculum includes online safety and SRE, and you can find more information about both of these by clicking on the Introduction tab to the left.

Our core PSHE curriculum is based on the PSHE Association materials. Our curriculum overview can be downloaded below:

Building Learning Power

Building Learning Power (BLP) is a key component of our PSHE curriculum in school. This is taught across our whole curriculum. See Building Learning Power tab for more information.

Every term, we teach one of our whole-school values such as Respect. This is embedded within the curriculum.
