Growing In Faith and Learning
Religious Education Statement of Intent
Religious Education is taught using the Diocese of Lichfield’s Guidance following the ‘Understanding Christianity’ scheme. It is our intent that Religious Education promotes the Christian concept of the Trinity to engage and inform, equipping our children with the knowledge and skills to ask and seek answers to challenging questions. We provide an irresistible curriculum that not only develops our children’s understanding of their own faith and values, but also encourages them to flourish as individuals. This enables them to make sense of religion and to be able to reflect on their own views. We provide our children with opportunities to learn about world religions and views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. As a result, they will become independent, empathetic and responsible members of society who understand and explore big questions about life. They will be encouraged to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities whilst also embracing our vision of how to live as Christians, with a sense of Hope, Community, Dignity and Wisdom.
