At Harold Wood primary School we follow the Pathways curriculum which is the London Borough of Havering agreed syllabus for Religious education. The Agreed Syllabus is intended to provide the basis of effective teaching and learning to encourage children to learn from different religious beliefs, values and traditions whilst exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning.

The table below shows an overview of the topics being taught in each year group, for each term.
