Religion and World Views

The principal aim of Religious Education (RE) at Sherwell Valley Primary School is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.

The curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can make sense of a range of religious and non-religious beliefs
  • Can understand the impact and significance of religious and non-religious beliefs
  • Can make connections between religious and non-religious beliefs, concepts, practices and ideas studied

Our RE lessons equip our children with the knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and beliefs, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. We aim for our children to be able to participate positively in our society, with its diverse religions and beliefs. Children learn to clearly and coherently articulate their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ, thus forming their own world view.
