At Winton Primary School we believe Religious Education has a central part to play in the education of the whole child.
We believe Religious Education:
- Teaches pupils to develop respect for others, including people from different faiths and beliefs. It encourages understanding and helps to challenge prejudice.
- Enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens of a diverse society.
- Encourages pupils to explore their own beliefs (whether they are religious or non-religious) in the light of what they learn. This can help them to better understand and strengthen their own beliefs whilst also understanding more deeply the beliefs of others, including their peers.
- Encourages pupils to ask questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be a human being. It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of different religions and religious traditions, fostering personal and spiritual development.
- Prompts pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and others, and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to wider society. It encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.
We follow the Islington SACRE: LBI Agreed Syllabus for RE 2017-2022
