At Dean Bank Primary School, Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and philosophy of the school. Our aim is that children will become resilient, accepting, mindful and inquisitive learners. Our role is to ensure pupils are being inquisitive by asking questions about the world around them by allowing pupils to gain high quality experiences.
Through the R.E. curriculum, our children will discover and gain an insight into religions within the world that we live.
It is our intent that RE provides a positive context in which the diversity of cultures, beliefs and values in society can be celebrated and explored, and presents an opportunity to promote an ethos of respect for others. Lessons ensure that our children grow to become tolerant and respectful citizens, who appreciate that everybody has their own set of beliefs and values and that these may differ from their own.
Our curriculum encourages children to become critical thinkers and provides opportunities for personal reflection where children can explore their own beliefs and opinions in a safe and supportive environment.
The RE curriculum forms part of our school’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural teaching.
