RE at Ryvers - Miss Lamba smiley

 

At Ryvers we believe that Religious Education should develop in pupils an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in our society with its diversity of beliefs. They learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences, whilst respecting the right of others to differ. Religious education supports pupils in developing their sense of identity and belonging and enables them to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a diverse world.

Discussions in lessons are based around focusing on the similarities between the religions, cultural beliefs and traditions. In the current climate and modern world there is a need for  young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values and those that  can respect the religious and cultural differences of others in return contributing  to a cohesive and compassionate society.

Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. RE is an important subject in itself, developing an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of contemporary society. Religious education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human. It can develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, of other principal religions, other religious traditions and worldviews that offer answers to questions such as these. RE also contributes to pupils’ personal development and well-being and to community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society. RE can also make important contributions to other parts of the school curriculum such as personal, social, health and citzenship education (PSHCE), the humanities, education for sustainable development and others. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, deepening the understanding of the significance of religion in the lives of others – individually, communally and cross-culturally.
