At St Margaret’s, Religious Education has a unique place as a central subject in the curriculum. We believe that it is vital for all of our pupils to learn from and about religion, so that they can understand the world around them. Religious Education enables children to build their sense of identity and belonging, helping them to flourish within their community and as citizens of a diverse society.
The RE curriculum, underpinned by the teaching of Christianity and through teaching understanding of other major world religions and non-religious world views, teaches children to develop respect for others and helps to challenge prejudice. Within our teaching of RE, we seek to encourage curiosity, empathy, generosity and compassion, prompting children to consider their responsibilities to themselves and others and to explore how they might contribute to their community and the wider world.
