Religious Education

Religious Education Curriculum Intent  

RE helps students to understand the diverse world they live in and their own place in that world.   

Lessons are equally accessible to students of any faith or none. Success is dependent on the ability to understand, analyse and evaluate, rather than on personal conviction. 

Through KS3 and KS4 RE in Bradfield we strive to develop in all students a knowledge and understanding of religious and non-religious world views to foster a greater appreciation of the rich, culturally and religiously diverse world in which we live. We aim to support students in developing their own spiritual, moral and social awareness by increasing their understanding of the complex issues and challenges faced by people from all walks of life within their own city and beyond. It is our ambition that students leave Bradfield School with a greater understanding of their own place within society, both local and global.  

Our pupils will learn key beliefs from major world religions, with particular focus on the main religious tradition of our country in order to reflect on the historical context of Great Britain. We will foster a culture of critical enquiry and analysis through the study and evaluation of textual and other sources. Our ultimate goal is to create and nurture an intellectual curiosity in pupils to develop a love of learning and an understanding of the role of the subject within the curriculum.
