Religious Education is an integral part of everyday life. At Orston, children should learn to express and communicate ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews. RE enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and build their cultural capital.
RE teaches children to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs and helps to challenge prejudice; children should gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews. Within our teaching of RE we seek to engage pupils in discussion, dialogue, and debate to explore how they might contribute to their communities and the wider world whilst enabling them to develop their own ideas, values and identity.
Alongside our own specific scheme of work for RE, we also cover lessons within these units that develop our pupils' understanding of British Values.
