Religious Education (RE)

Re Cliparts - Cliparts Zone

Our RE curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s skills, knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, fundamental questions in life which both lead to their own spiritual knowledge, understanding and beliefs.

The children will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop an awareness of spiritual and moral issues in life experiences within an inclusive and nurturing ethos.
  • Develop an understanding of what it means to be committed to a religious tradition showing a developed moral and social understanding giving the skills of tolerance and respect.
  • Reflect on their own experiences and develop a personal response to the fundamental questions of life, through an engaging and inspiring curriculum, helping them to grow in showing respect for others.
  • Consider their place in society, using their RE knowledge and understanding to inspire them in social action and change both locally and globally.
