At Stanford, Religious Education has an important part to play in preparing pupils to meet the challenges of modern society and cultural diversity. We follow the Merton Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education which ‘reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teachings and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism’.
The aim of Religious Education is to help pupils obtain different skills:
- Acquire knowledge and understanding of religion
- Enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
- Explore and develop their ability to reason and inform opinions about moral issues
- Develop positive attitudes towards other people, respecting their right to hold different beliefs from their own
At Stanford we encourage the children to be inquisitive and to develop their knowledge and skills through a wide range of stimulating activities. Each year group undertakes 6 different areas which are developed appropriately to suit pupils’ age range from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 and 2.
