RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Subject Leader – MRS MIDDLEBROOK

Religious Education at Perry Hall

The aim of Religious Education at Perry Hall is for pupils to know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.

We follow the Wolverhampton SACRE for Religious Education in Wolverhampton schools, which provides provoking challenging questions about human life, beliefs, communities and ideas. In our RE lessons, pupils learn from religions and worldviews about different ways of life in local, national and global contexts. They discover, explore and consider many different answers to questions about human identity, meaning and value. They learn to weigh up for themselves the value of wisdom from different communities, to disagree respectfully, to be reasonable in their responses to religions and worldviews and to respond by expressing insights into their own and others’ lives. They think rigorously, creatively, imaginatively and respectfully about their ideas in relation to religions and worldviews.

By the time our pupils leave us, we aim for them to understand and respect the beliefs of a range of religions and world views. We hope for them to constructively question their own beliefs and ideals, developing them into respectful citizens of the world.

WHY IS RELIGIOUS EDUCATION IMPORTANT TO OUR CHILDREN?

Year 2 Child

We learn how to help other people and their beliefs.

Year 6 Child

We learn about the beliefs of others so that we can be respectful towards them.
