Our RE teaching is based on the agreed North Somerset syllabus for Religious Education, 'Awareness, Mystery and Value',
We believe Religious Education helps children not only to gain a deeper understanding the nature of religion but also aid their quest for meaning and purpose, and the development of their own beliefs, attitudes and values.
Religious Education provides opportunities for the children to ask and discuss challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops children's knowledge and understanding of the nature of Christianity and other major religions, various religious traditions and world in the context of a diverse society. Their increased understanding of various beliefs and world views helps to develop empathy, respect and sensitivity towards others, challenge prejudices and promote ways in which communities can live and work together. RE offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual and moral development, and contributes towards children's self awareness and well-being.
