Religious Education

RE explores the big questions about life, to find out what people believe, how they express that belief and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.


We aim for our children to:


1. Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews 

  • describe, explain and analyse beliefs and practices
  • recognise the diversity which exists
  • investigate and respond to questions posed, and responses offered by some of the sources of wisdom found in religions

2. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews 

  • explain reasonably their ideas about how beliefs and practices influence individuals and communities
  • express their personal reflections to questions and teachings about identity, diversity, meaning and value, including ethical issues

3. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews 

  • enquire into what enables different individuals and communities to live together respectfully for the wellbeing of all 
  • articulate beliefs, values and commitments clearly in order to explain why they may be important in their own and other people’s lives.
