Aims ( read more in the RE Policy on this page )
Our aim is to ensure that all children will, at an age appropriate level:
‘know about and understand a range of religions and world views’
‘express ideas and insights of their own into the significant human questions which religions address’ whilst
‘gaining and deploying skills needed to study religion’
Agreed Syllabus for RE in Nottinghamshire 2015 p. 6
There are strong connections between the RE programs of study and British Values, Global learning, Community Cohesion, Respect for all, SEAL and SMSC and the implementation of these three areas of learning will greatly enhance the development of these within the primary curriculum.
Request for Children to be Withdrawn
It is recognised that parents have the right to request that their children be withdrawn from Religious Education lessons – in its entirety or in part. To make such a request, they need to formally write to the head teacher.
The right of any member of staff to withdraw from the teaching of RE is recognised and respected.
