At Cambridge Primary School we value other people’s beliefs, values and religions. We ensure that all pupils’ voices are heard through a broad and balanced RE curriculum.
RE is a stimulating, exciting and important subject which encourages children to learn, enquire and evaluate what religions have to say about the important questions of life. Children study how religions and beliefs relate to one another, recognising both similarities and differences within and between them.
RE has a vital role in developing children’s awareness of themselves, preparing pupils for adult life, employment and lifelong learning. It encourages children to ask questions, develops deeper, considered thinking, and provides them with the tools to thrive within their own communities and as citizens in a diverse society and global community.
Our school’s main aims of RE are to enable our pupils to be informed, expressive, enquiring and reflective.
The main religions taught in Reception and Key Stage 1 are Christianity and Judaism, and at Key Stage 2 are Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism. We also learn about important themes, such as Race and Diversity, Justice and the environment.
