RE provides the opportunity to consider big questions about the meaning and purpose of life. In the Pre-Prep children learn about different religions, beliefs, values and traditions and issues of right and wrong, while exploring their own beliefs and what it means to be who they are. They also deepen their knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other religions, such as Judaism and Hinduism.
RE challenges children to investigate, reflect on, analyse and evaluate issues of truth, belief and ethics, and to communicate their responses. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, and encourages the development of a sense of identity and belonging within the wider community.
We teach the subject through a combination of topic-based lessons, cross-curricular projects, exciting events and visits through the year to local churches and other religious buildings.
