Religious Education provokes challenging questions about ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God and religion, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It encourages students to learn from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning.
Within the curriculum, students will be encouraged to develop skills of investigation, interpretation, reflection, empathy and evaluation alongside analysis, synthesis and expression. We don't force belief on students; instead we give them the space to consider their own responses to the different belief systems they will study. Students will also have access, through their lessons, to a range of guest speakers from different faith communities, who will help to bring the curriculum alive from a personal perspective.
Religious Education is taught across all year groups, as per the requirements of the National Curriculum and Cornwall Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
