Our curriculum supports all our students in developing an appreciation and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the major world religions, while identifying Christianity as the main religious tradition of Great Britain.
Our curriculum develop student’s understanding of the diversity in religion that we have in Britain today. Our curriculum supports the teaching of the core British values – respect, democracy, the rule of law tolerance, through themes relating to religion, social justice, philosophy and changes in society.
Students have opportunities to promote an ethos of respect for others, challenge stereotypes and build understanding of other cultures and beliefs. Our curriculum ensures that all students understand and appreciate their place in the society that they live in, the rights that they have and the role they have in the future development of society to produce well-rounded global active citizens.
The curriculum will develop an awareness of how religious traditions have developed over time and the diversity of views on moral issues and practices. Students will engage with key philosophical and ethical themes and will be given opportunity to express themselves using key terminology. This will help develop their own worldview and their ability to give reasoned arguments for their beliefs and opinions.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
While we look at religion from a more academic perspective in school, it should help every student to grow in their character and develop their sense of social responsibility, especially the weak and vulnerable.
