Our Religious Education curriculum is intended to:
- Provide powerful knowledge about religious beliefs and practices.
- Provide religious and cultural literacy, which will enable students to engage fully in British culture, society, literature, and the arts.
- Develop a working knowledge of and practical appreciation for the diverse range of religions and cultures present in our school, local and national community.
- Instil an understanding of and respect for the fundamental British values of democracy, tolerance, individual liberty and the rule of law with respect to individuals’ beliefs, cultures and values.
- Enable our students to engage actively and productively in the religious, cultural, civic and political life of the United Kingdom as thoughtful and reflective citizens.
Through our RE curriculum, we intend to induct students into the epistemology and skills of the diverse disciplines which underpin Religious Education. Within this curriculum we define these as:
- Philosophy (the logical study of fundamental questions about existence, knowledge, ethics, and reason)
- Theology (the ontological study of religion and religious belief)
- Sociology (the empirical study of the norms, values and behaviours of society)
- History (the historical-critical study of religious texts and teachings, and the world and society behind these texts)
