Religious Education occurs in a context of Christianity and other religious traditions. Through Religious Education lessons pupils have opportunities to explore the rites, rituals, beliefs, practices and festivals of the religions being studied. These religions include Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
A variety of learning opportunities are provided including: Creative Arts (dance, drama and art work), media (Film, Television and Radio), and immersive sensory experiences.
Religious Education is relevant to everyday life. Pupils will be encouraged to learn and develop respect for the views and beliefs held by others, making links to their local communities, whilst considering their own spiritual development. The culture and religious backgrounds of both staff and pupils are acknowledged and respected. Pupils will be encouraged to gain understanding of what it may mean to have a personal religious commitment.
