As a Church of England school, different faiths, along with Christianity are an important part of the RE curriculum.
Religious Education (RE) is an essential and fascinating part of learning. With issues of religion and belief frequently topping the news agenda, RE helps children to develop a growing understanding and make sense of them. RE allows children growing up in a diverse society to understand the views and opinions of people whose beliefs and values differ from their own. As a Church of England school, different faiths, along with Christianity are an important part of the RE curriculum. Along with daily collective worship, it provides space for children to reflect on their own ideas and develop their thoughts about questions of meaning and ethics. Through learning, debate and questioning, along with gaining knowledge and understanding, children are being equipped to handle issues in their lives, and preparing them the next steps in their lives and for the workplace and adult life.
Throughout the school, an enquiry approach is used to teach Religious Education using Discovery RE as a framework for the children’s learning.
