As a school, we believe that children should be given the opportunity to access
quality Religious Education that enables them to develop an understanding of the world around them. Using 'Understanding Christianity' and the agreed diocesan syllabus of Newcastle and Durham, we give children the opportunity to understand relevant texts from the major world religions and faiths. While analysing the texts, children are given the opportunity to begin to understand the impact these have on a person, culture, society and the wider world and make justified responses in a variety of different ways. We place importance on making connections between different beliefs as well as our own personal beliefs and encourage children to embody the Christian values we demonstrate in school.
