Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection. The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.
The key aims for religious education are reflected in the two attainment targets.
Attainment Target 1- Learning about religion and belief
Attainment target 2- Learning from religion and belief
The development of knowledge, skills and understanding focuses on these two key aspects of learning in Religious Education.
