Religious Education Intent
“Religious education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.”
Children are naturally inquisitive and love to question…
We want our children to be informed, confident and empathetic and to understand similarities and differences in cultural practices and beliefs, fostering a respectful a tolerant society. It is vital for our pupils to learn to value themselves and understand their own identity, to respect others, and to understand their own and others’ rights and responsibilities. As our communities become more diverse, there is a great need for a more culturally mindful and accepting world.
Religious Education at Glade is enquiry based; the children explore and learn through investigating an open ended question. This promotes many levels of interpretation and encourages the learning and questioning to be taken further. Religious Education at Glade provides children with the encouragement to enquire and question thoughts, feelings and beliefs of others, whilst giving respect and accepting our differences.
