Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. Through RE, we hope to develop pupil’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs, which form part of contemporary society.
Through the teaching of RE, we hope to prepare pupils for adult life, employment and lifelong learning. Our aim is to help children and young people become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
The knowledge, skills and understanding learned will help them to discern and value truth and understanding. Thus, strengthening their capacity to make moral judgements and the ability to evaluate different types of experiences in making positive and healthy choices.
It is our intention at Dollis that our RE lessons will contribute to pupils’ understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures and beliefs. We hope to promote shared values and challenge racism and discrimination. In addition, pupils will develop an understanding of different religions of the world and grow tolerance and appreciation for culture, beliefs and the way of life of others.
As a school, we aim to enhance and develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences, which will play a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
