Religious Education

Our religious education curriculum aims to develop students’ skills as theologians, philosophers and social scientists. Students will have an understanding of local, national and global perspectives and make informed personal choices. The curriculum encourages self-reflection and evaluation of key personal beliefs and cultural practices. Our local area has a shortage of diverse religious communities and the curriculum hopes to promote and develop a greater understanding of the wider society in which we live. There has been substantial migration to this area in recent years and this has mainly come from Catholic and Orthodox Eastern European traditions.

Across Key Stage 3 we put a greater emphasis on Christianity as a majority of our students come from a Christian background, followed by Islam.  There are some misconceptions around Islam and Muslims within the school and by teaching this religion we aim to address those misconceptions and generate a more positive and tolerant understanding of others in our wider society.
