Through Religious education we aim to develop children’s depth of thinking so that they can relate to a range of world faiths, the impact faith has on lives of believers, and how those believers show their faith in their daily lives.
Our main focus is the Christian faith, looking at the Creation Story form different perspectives, the Incarnation and the life of Jesus and the meaning of Salvation. The Islamic and Jewish faiths are also looked at in detail, as well as other faiths and Humanism. Our pupils learn how an individual's beliefs affect the way they live their lives, act as members of a community and respond to world issues. Our Curriculum follows three strands: Theology, Philosophy and Social Sciences, and our pupils learn about important events, festivals and people of faith through stories, research and personal conversations.
Our pupils develop an enquiry based approach to their learning, and through this, learn to appreciate differences and similarities in the lives of the people around them.
