Subject Vision: “Every time you break down that narrative of otherness, the narrative of togetherness grows.” Brendan Cox

Our vision for Religious Education is to inspire a curiosity about people through exploring world views held so that pupils can gain authentic knowledge, understanding and the skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living. R.E. has an important place in the curriculum: it provides a safe space for young people to develop their understanding of people, cultures, religious and non-religious world views.  Children will gain a coherent understanding, thus preparing them for their journey through education and life in twenty-first century Britain.  R.E. will contribute to children’s personal and academic development.  As well as gaining knowledge and understanding of religions and beliefs, the children will develop their own understanding of the world and how to live, in the light of their learning.  R.E. will make a significant contribution to children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as providing opportunities to explore British values.
