Religious Education for children and young people provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life. It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity amongst other religions 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. 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. It encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.
At Millbrook Combined School, we provide an inclusive curriculum, which allows our children to experience and embrace the diverse local, national and global communities in which they live. We take opportunities to visit different places of worship each year. In addition, religious learning also takes place through special assemblies which pupils produce and attend. Through a broad range of cross-curricular opportunities, our children experience world religions and learn about tolerance and inclusion.
