Religious Education

In RE students are given a wider understanding of the beliefs, diversity and moral values of others. RE approaches current issues that you may hear about in the media and want to gain a further understanding of. You will have the chance to communicate with others and give your opinion in a respectful way

Purpose of the RE Curriculum:

  1. To provoke challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs, the self, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human.
  2. To develop students’ knowledge and understanding of principle religions, fostering personal reflection and spiritual development
  3. To encourages students to explore their own beliefs (whether they are religious or non-religious), in the light of what they learn, as they examine issues of religious belief and faith
  4. To enable students to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within communities and as citizens in a diverse society
  5. To teach students to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs, and helps to challenge prejudice
  6. To prompt students to consider their responsibilities to themselves and others, and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to wider society.
