We aim to give pupils the necessary knowledge and skills to flourish both within their own community and as members of a diverse global society. Our RE curriculum develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of a wide range of religions, religious traditions and secular world views, and explores their responses to life’s challenges.
Our holistic approach aims to support pupils’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC). Our approach enables children to understand both key similarities and differences between religions, as well as how people implement these beliefs into their everyday lives.
By preparing pupils for life in a diverse and multicultural world, we are enabling them to develop awareness of the fundamental questions raised by human experiences, and of how religious teachings can relate to them. As understanding develops children can respond to such questions with reference to teachings and practices of religions and other belief systems, as well as relating them to their own understanding and experience.
