We are a Community school and welcome children from all religious backgrounds. We have strong links with faith groups who regularly visit school. Children will engage in weekly RE lessons, where they will learn about the many religions that make up their local community (including: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism) and the rest of the world. Throughout their school life, children will have the opportunity to visit different places of worship and gain understanding and knowledge of religious festivals/celebrations.
Throughout each topic, children will be given the opportunity to:
- Learn about the religious beliefs, teachings and questions about meaning,
- Learn about the different way in which the religion is expressed (including art and music)
- Learn about religious practices and how these build on values and morals.
This will enable children to understand a range of religions and world views, express ideas and the significance of religion to the modern world and gain skills that encourage them to raise questions and debate ideas.
Please refer to the class newsletters for more information on what your child will be learning throughout the year!
