Learning about the religious beliefs that give meaning to people's lives

Page under construction...

In RE we aim to enable children to understand the nature of religion through an understanding of explicit religious beliefs and practices, and implicit questions of meaning and value. We live in a multi-cultural society, and it is essential that we study the major world religions that represent the diverse beliefs of our population, as well as recognising that Christianity underpins the British constitution and has a significant influence in the cultural heritage of the United Kingdom. In an increasingly interconnected world, it is also important to recognise how different systems of belief share common values, and in many cases, common histories.
