Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Diocese of Manchester. As a Voluntary Aided School with a Christian foundation, in each year there is a focus on Christianity plus the opportunity for pupils to learn about and evaluate their own views on other world religions. RE enables pupils to appreciate their own and others’ beliefs and cultures, helping them to develop a clear understanding of the significance of religion in their own area as well as in the world today.
RE intends to promote religious understanding and respect, and to challenge prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping.
It is concerned with the promotion of each pupil’s self-worth, enabling them to reflect on their uniqueness as human beings, to share their feelings and emotions with others and to appreciate the importance of forming and maintaining positive relationships.
We strongly believe that the purpose of RE is about religious literacy. This means we aim for children to be able to hold a balanced and well-informed conversation about religion and belief. We do this by exploring and asking questions.
