Religious Education

Religious Education is taught in all classes and follows the Kent agreed syllabus.  We aim through this teaching to enable children to explore the meaning and purpose of their relives and to develop an appreciation of religion in contemporary life.  We encourage the concepts of respect, understanding and tolerance of others, whatever their beliefs.  RE lessons will also aim to foster an open and enquiring mind whilst developing empathy skills within the pupils.
* Parent / Carers have the right to withdraw children from RE lessons.  It is expected that before doing so, they would discuss their decision with the Headteacher.

In the Curriculum Overview document (link below) you will see a basic outline of the knowledge, understanding and skills to be covered. How teachers organise, interpret and teach this may vary and is subject to change.
