Religious Education
Religious Education policy

We teach the children about world religions, and help them to explore and reflect on human and spiritual experiences encouraging the development of sensitive attitudes.

Our Religious Education curriculum is based around Understanding Christianity. This is a unit of study provided by the Church of England and is based on gaining a knowledge of the Christian faith, worship and how Christian teaching is based on the Bible. This content is supplemented by units of study looking at other major world faiths and provides an opportunity to compare and contrast the roles which religions play within Britain and around the world. 

ChurchChildren learn the diversity of different religions, beliefs, values and traditions, whilst still affirming their own faith. Religious Education is crucial in preparing children for their future by enabling them to develop respect and sensitivity to others. Moreover, it deals with challenging, big questions and creates room for debate on a range of  complex, relevant and interesting issues.
