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. 

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. Our aim is to create and nurture an intellectual curiosity in pupils to develop a love of learning and understanding of their own place within society, both local and global.
