At SBSP Religious Education is an integral part of our curriculum. RE lessons provide an opportunity for our children to learn about Christianity, the church and other world religions as well as exploring moral issues. We adhere to the Church of England’s Statement of Entitlement to ensure our children receive high quality lessons delivered in an atmosphere of respect, we want the children to become Religiously literate, where they have the knowledge and understanding to engage in well informed, empathetic discussions in RE lessons.
Lessons and whole school focus days aim to inspire the children to further their understanding, as well as providing an opportunity for them to share their knowledge and experience. Through RE we hope the children will feel confident to ask big questions and think deeply, not only about what they have learnt but also about their own opinions and beliefs. We want the children to build their knowledge and beliefs and become ‘courageous advocates’ pioneering change for good, not only in the school but also in the local community.
Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism are studied using the units provided by the London Diocesan Board for Schools.
