Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Religious Education Intent

 

Religious Education (RE) is taught to all children. Our teaching promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. It reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions represented in Great Britain. Our teaching enables pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs, attitudes, practices and rituals. They will also develop their own beliefs and values. We will not convert or steer pupils towards a particular religious belief. They
will also be aware that some people have no attachment to religious beliefs and follow secular philosophies. We are very proud to have a close relationship with Greenacres Congregational Church, with the Reverend taking our assemblies once per month. We also regularly visit the church, the local mosque and a synagogue, a gurdwara and a Buddhist temple close to school.
