School Values in Religious Education

Individual and unique: 

Students have the opportunity to explore and develop their knowledge and understanding of the sources of wisdom and their impact in the key monolithic religions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity in Upper Key Stage 2 and Lower Key Stage 3.  As with other humanities subjects,  they are able to explore their own personal and critical responses to the theology.


The history and philosophy wrapped around these religions, provides opportunities for students to explore their own interpretations of the big questions in life, and how the major monolithic religions attempt to answer them.


Students are able to develop their critical thinking and discursive writing to explore debate and to value and understand how different interpretations can lead to different values and life styles.


Students are able to explore how beliefs and practices have influenced identify and belonging and to evaluate human responsibility and values.  They have a continued opportunity to develop their own faith or rejection of faith
