We seek to ensure that our pupils are successful in ‘religious literacy’ with the ability to hold balanced and informed conversations about religions and beliefs. We believe religious literacy matters because we seek to ensure that our pupils are open minded, with confidence in their own views, and expressing those views. We seek to ensure are pupils are empathetic, with the ability to see things from different perspectives as part of the ‘bigger picture’ of religion and society. We hope that this may help them in their own lives as confident, well-rounded citizens. We strive to teach RE through three interconnected aspects:
- Making sense of the text
- Making connections
- Understanding the impact
