RE and Collective Worship
The Religious Education of children is central to all areas of the school’s life.
RE forms part of our school ethos and helps children understand the main tenets of Christianity, whilst giving them an awareness of the diversity of religious beliefs around the world. Our aims in teaching Religious Education are that children should explore religious faith and practice, discover the beliefs, practices and history of Christianity through an exploration of God, Jesus Christ, the Church, worship and prayer, the Bible, Christians in action, Christmas and Easter.
Children also begin to explore other world faiths (Judaism in Key Stages 1 and 2; Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism in Key Stage 2) and express their curiosity about the meaning and purpose of life. We encourage them to recognise the relationship between the natural world and human responsibility, reflect on belief, practice, values and tradition.
