Religious Education  


We aim to help pupils to develop their own values and principles.  
We support their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and foster mutual understanding between peoples of differing religious and cultural backgrounds.  

Our learning environment is stimulating to encourage critical thinking. To enhance this, the R.E department makes regular loans of artefacts and other learning materials from the county R.E centre in Winchester. We also use other resources such as the internet to aid studies.  

It is also recognised that the pupils need a relaxing and comfortable environment so that they feel confident enough to express their views. We feel this is an important aspect of the pupils’ learning experience in R.E and accordingly pupils are aware of the behaviour expectations and the rewards for clearly expressing their ideas.
