Religious Education

Statement of Intent: Religious Education

Our intent for Religious Education is for our curriculum to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage children, ensuring that they have the knowledge, understanding and skills to answer challenging questions and to explore different religious beliefs, values and traditions in order to develop a more rigorous understanding of the numerous religious traditions, beliefs and practices that are followed in our multi-cultural society.

We want them to think critically, ethically and morally and to develop an understanding that Religious Education promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice, preparing them for secondary school, adult life, employment and life-long learning.

We aim for the children to leave school with a sound knowledge of the faiths and beliefs of those around them, and the ability to engage in appropriate ways with others, whatever their faith or belief.
