Intent

  • Children know about and understand Christianity as a diverse global living faith through the exploration of core beliefs using an approach that critically engages with biblical text.
  • Children gain knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews appreciating diversity, continuity and change within the religions and worldviews being studied.
  • Children engage with challenging questions of meaning and purpose raised by human existence and experience.
  • Children recognise the concept of religion, its continuing influence on Britain’s cultural heritage and in the lives of individuals and societies in different times, cultures and places.
  • Children explore their own religious, spiritual and philosophical ways of living, believing and thinking.

How do our values shine through in Religious Education?

Respect

Children know that people have different cultures, beliefs and opinions and that this should be respected and accepted by everyone within our school.

Compassion

Children explore their own religious, spiritual and/or philosophical ways of seeing, living and thinking, believing and belonging. Children engage in meaningful and informed dialogue with those of all religions and worldviews.

Courage

Children have the courage to ask questions, enquire and reflect on religious and non-religious world views.

Perseverance

Children understand that their own personal views and beliefs may change over time. They nurture their own spiritualty and to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.
