Welcome to RE at Monksdown Primary 2017 – 2018

2017 Whole Curriculum – RE

RE Policy

Our Vision

Here at Monksdown Primary our vision for Religious Education is to inspire religiously literate young people who have the knowledge, understanding and skills to reflect spiritually, think ethically, and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment  in everyday life. Learning about other cultures and religions is an important part of our development.

Children will be given plenty of opportunities to work through a cross-curricular approach, supporting them to think creatively. They will be encouraged to engage their own and others’ beliefs and values, helping them to develop positive attitudes. Children will be actively taught the British values; Democracy, Rule of law, Individual liberty, Mutual respect and tolerance towards those of different faiths and beliefs. In RE, we learn about religious practices and traditions, but also the importance of our role in the world and society. This gives us great opportunity to be reflective.

Children will foster a sense of self-worth through their sense of belonging to the caring Monksdown community.
