Religious Education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. At All Saints CE Primary School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, and we address fundamental questions concerning, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of a divine spirit. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge not only of Christianity but also of other world religions. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions.
The objectives of teaching Religious Education in our school are to help children:
Through RE lessons at All Saints children are encouraged to reflect on the 'big questions' about life and faith. This starts from Reception, and is a skill built on throughout the school journey. Our aim is to develop deep-thinking and enquiry, and to share ideas and opinions, whilst listening to and respecting others' beliefs and values.
Even the youngest children amaze us with their profound observations!
