At Kinderley Primary School we believe that Religious Education (R.E) has a vital part to play in the general, personal, and social development of our children. R.E. helps children learn about the rich ethnic and cultural diversity found in this country and the wider world. It is also a valuable means of exploring attitudes around the roles of women and men.
The aims of Religious Education are for pupils to:
v develop religious literacy
v acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in the UK
v develop an understanding of the influence beliefs (both religious and secular) values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures
v develop positive attitudes of respect towards other people who hold views and beliefs different from their own; living in a society of diverse religions
v develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious issues
R.E is taught using the Discovery RE Scheme which ensures teaching is progressive from Reception to Year 6, with children building upon and revisiting previous learning to develop breadth of knowledge and understanding.
