Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

PURPOSE

Purpose of RE

 

• Religious Education contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

• In RE pupils learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions.

• Pupils learn to evaluate wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.

• Teaching therefore should equip pupils with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities.

• It should develop in pupils an aptitude for dialogue, so that they can participate positively in society, with its diverse religions and worldviews.

• Pupils should gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence. They should learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
