RE/worship lead – Mrs Abela
Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall vision, values, and philosophy of the school. Our RE scheme encourages pupils to develop positive attitudes to their learning and to the beliefs and values of others. The curriculum promotes the essential attitudes of self-awareness, respect for all, open-mindedness and appreciation and wonder. These are developed at each stage or phase of religious education in school.
Pupils’ learning about the content of RE takes place alongside the development of their skills. In RE, pupils’ gain general skills such as gathering information, expressing ideas or evaluation sources. As pupils progress in developing these skills, they will be increasingly able to understand the characteristics of each religion, and the similarities and differences between religions. In this way, our pupils’ develop a clear understanding of religion in their own area as well as in the wider world today.
At our school, Religious Education plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, particularly PSHE (Heartsmart), in promoting the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development of our children.
