Religious Education Subject Intent

We aim to develop flexible, creative thinkers and encourage curiosity about real world problems and how to solve them. Stimulate an active attitude of enquiry. Support pupils in developing an understanding of various types of belief and how these affect other individuals and society in general.
 
Provoke challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality. As well as issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human, including challenging stereotypical views.
 
 
Develop knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and other major world faiths, including the Baha’i Faith, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism as well as ethical non-theistic traditions, such as Humanism. Enable the development of a sense of identity and belonging and the ability to flourish within pluralistic societies, locally, nationally and internationally.
 
Develop further empathy, tolerance and harmony between different cultural and religious traditions.
