To be the world leaders of tomorrow, our children must have a thorough understanding of the world; an extremely important aspect to that understanding is religion. Through knowledge of a range of religions, and the similarities and differences between them, we are building understanding, tolerance and acceptance. We want our children to be able to live and work in many different societies throughout the world and so intend to broaden their cultural understanding through our RE lessons. We use important texts, festivals and beliefs to introduce the children to parts of the world that they may not have experienced first-hand. As with the rest of the curriculum, this knowledge is built upon and expanded as they progress through the world.
