RE is regarded as a core subject within our school curriculum and is reflective of our school vision and values. It is central to defining our school’s distinctive Christian character and strongly supports pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It has a vital role in developing religious literacy and deepening pupils’ understanding of Christianity, in all its forms, and fostering appreciation and understanding of other faith traditions and world views.
RE is designed to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage pupils, equipping them with the wisdom, knowledge and skills to ask and answer challenging questions. It provides opportunities for pupils to confidently explore and discover what people of different faiths believe and the difference this makes to the way they live. It is the cornerstone to pupils’ growing understanding of their place in today’s diverse society.
