RE sets out to teach pupils about the world around them, encouraging a sense of their own identity and of relationships with other individuals and groups of different faiths. It endeavours to help pupils to convey their feelings and thoughts, to experience and develop an awareness of the spiritual dimension of life and eventually to approach questions of ultimate value. It complements the PSHE curriculum very well and also focuses upon questions of ethics, building relationships and family.
RE is taught through two RE days a half term focussing upon festivals, stories from religions and key concepts, providing an immersive experience for the children and repetition so that skills can be built over time.
NB: Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE. Please ask for details.
