Religious Education

Religious education is an important part of the curriculum at the Pre-Prep School.

We believe that the purpose of Religious Education is to develop children's knowledge, skills and understanding of the major world faiths and festivals. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge not only of Christianity but also of other world religions, especially those that are the main faiths of children within our school. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding.

Throughout Key stage 1 all children follow an RE curriculum based on the non-statutory framework for RE by the QCA, which enables children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major World Religions. The school organizes visits to local places of worship and invites representatives of local religious groups to come into school and talk to the children. During RE lessons children will have the opportunity to participate in discussions and debates, role-play, presentations and assemblies celebrating religious festivals. This all helps to develop awareness of ideas and practices that are characteristic of most religions and also identity's similarities as well as differences.

The children will develop a positive attitude towards other people and their rights to hold beliefs different from their own and to live in a religiously diverse society.
