Religious Education

Stanley St Peter’s Religious Education Vision 

 

At Stanley St Peter’s our main aim is to ‘Unlock Potential and Celebrate Success.’ We recognise that Religious Education is an academic subject which provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life. It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity amongst other religions (principally Judaism at KS1 and Islam at KS2) and religious traditions. RE enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society. Through knowledge of religions and religious practices, it teaches pupils to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs and helps to challenge prejudice. RE prompts pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to the wider society. Through RE, we want to teach pupils at Stanley St. Peter’s to learn to live respectfully together by sharing their views and disagreeing well with each other. It encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.
