At Flushdyke, Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection.
The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.
Following the agreed Wakefield syllabus for RE, we teach children about key world religions through in-depth celebration days each half term. On these days, through the context of key religious festivals, the children are immersed in different beliefs, faiths and practices. It is our aim, as one of our 6 core values, to give our children opportunities to celebrate and be accepting of diversity so that they are fit for their future as open-minded citizens.
