Religious Education & Spiritual Development

Leaders: Mr Hollands & Mrs Worrall

Religious Education is given high priority within our school and forms part of our core curriculum. It is considered an invaluable academic subject which gives children and young people an understanding of how beliefs and values affect their lives and the lives of others. Children are given many opportunities for individual reflection and encouraged to ask deep and meaningful questions.

The curriculum explores Christianity in depth, as a living religion at the heart of our community and relates to the values, attitudes, relationships and aspirations that we promote within the wider school community. However, children also develop a clear understanding of the beliefs, practices and traditions of other principal religions and world views including Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism. We aim that Children from all faiths, and none, enjoy engaging, inspiring and academically rigorous, Religious Education lessons which relate to real life experiences. It is not the aim of our RE curriculum to encourage pupils to become committed Christians and we strongly believe that nurturing children's development of their own personal faith, whichever religion they follow, is an important part of Religious Education.

 

We are following the recommended Scheme of Work provided by the Diocese of Rochester details of which can be found below.

Compassion
  • Being compassionate is understanding some else's situation, helping them even if that isn't an easy thing to do.

Kindness
  • Kindness is love. Kindness is sharing. Kindness is everything. Yasmin

Humility
  • Humility means that you accept defeat and don't boast. It means that you are not a sore loser. John

Gentleness
  • Gentleness is a bit like kindness because if you are not being gentle to something you are not being kind. Saisha

Patience
  • Patience is giving your time, not rushing and sometimes waiting without complaining. Maia

Wisdom
  • 'Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is then not putting it into a fruit salad' Jessica
