RE - Religious Education
All students have access to RE in accordance with the 1988 Education Act. We aim to give all students the opportunity to learn about the different cultural and religious groups in a multicultural society. We promote tolerance and understanding and encourage students to question and respond to the beliefs and practices of other people, in the hope that they will be able to develop greater understanding of the world in which they live. Students are able to develop these skills in a variety of different ways: role-play, educational visits, visiting speakers, ICT simulated experiences e.g. taking part in a Seder meal, games, variety of practical activities. At KS2/3 students learn through a cross-curricular approach involving PSHE, Citizenship and English and they are able to accredit their work towards achieving ASDAN Key Steps Certificate.
In KS4 students work towards Entry Level Certificate in Religious Studies as well as GCSE short course in Religious Studies.
All students are encouraged to take part in Class and House assemblies, the themes of which are often linked to work being studied in class.
