Religious Education

Our Religious Education (RE) curriculum is a scheme written by Plan Bee. It aims to:

  • provoke challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human
  • develop knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and other major world faiths, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism as well as ethical non theistic traditions, such as Humanism
  • offer opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development and contribute to a search for meaning and purpose in life
  • enhance awareness, understanding of and responses to religions and beliefs, teachings, practices and forms of expression, as well as of the influence of religious and other beliefs on individuals, families, communities and cultures
  • encourage learning from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while reflecting on, considering, analysing, interpreting and evaluating issues of truth, faith and ethics and communicating responses
  • enable the development of a sense of identity and belonging and the ability to flourish within pluralistic societies, locally, nationally and internationally
  • offer preparation for adult life, employment and lifelong learning
  • foster respect for, and sensitivity to, individuals and communities of different faiths and beliefs
  • recognise the significance of interfaith dialogue and the important contribution religion can make to community cohesion by promoting discernment and combating religious prejudice and discrimination
