In a global society it is essential that our children learn about the different cultures and religions they will meet in their lives. We follow the Local Authority Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
The syllabus explains not only Christian beliefs but also other world faiths. Of these, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism are studied in greater depth.
We aim to help the pupils understand and respect the views of others in our multicultural society. We try to encourage the children to look for similarities and differences between the major world faiths in a non-judgemental way.
The themes covered during school assemblies are broadly Christian, with references to other important celebrations from major world religions. We also use SEAL topics and resources which support our class-based learning in PSHCE.
