Religious education has equal standing in relation to core subjects of the National Curriculum in that it is compulsory for all pupils. It is neither a core nor foundation subject.
Through our Religious Education curriculum we aim to engage pupils in enquiring into and exploring questions from the study of religion and belief so as to promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We aim to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religious traditions and beliefs as well as non-religious beliefs and traditions. We aim to develop learner’s understanding of the ways in which beliefs influence people in their behaviour, practices and outlook and develop a positive attitude towards other people who hold beliefs that are different from their own.
We aim to investigate the beliefs and practices of religions and other world views, address questions of meaning, purpose and value and how other world religions influence morality, identity and diversity.
We aim to develop a sense of belonging and discover their own place and journey through life and contribute to developing pupils as positive, participating citizens of the world.
