Religious Education

At Whitchurch, the RE curriculum is designed to support children to explore questions arising from the study of religion and belief and promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our aim is to provide an environment which does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place. In addition, we believe RE can contribute to an understanding of history and culture, to enhance children’s understanding of global affairs and develop personal well-being and happiness.

We feel RE teaches our children:

  • the different religions and their traditions, practices and belief
  • respect and open-mindedness towards other children who hold different religious beliefs
  • to encourage reflection on issues of justice and truth
  • to provoke questions about the meaning of life
  • to become well prepared for a world filled with multitude of notions
  • the knowledge and skills to flourish both within their own community and as members of a diverse and global society
