The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own. In other words, it explores big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
The Worcestershire agreed syllabus, that we follow, requires that all pupils learn from Christianity in each key stage. In addition, pupils will learn from the principal religions represented in the UK; these are Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Judaism. Furthermore, children from families where non-religious worldviews are held are represented in many of our classrooms. These worldviews will also be the focus for study.
