RE Vision Statement

RE will provoke 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. Pupils will learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. They will learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully. The teaching will develop a systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling pupils to develop their ideas, values and identities. It will develop in pupils an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in our society, with its diverse religions and worldviews. Pupils will gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence. They will learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
