At The Brent we recognise how Religious Education contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.
We teach children about and from the religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to thought provoking questions.
We also teach them the skills required to understand, interpret and evaluate texts and other evidence such as images and artefacts. They are supported to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ. Using their Growth Mindsets children take responsibility for their learning showing resilience and respect for the world around them.
‘RE explores big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.’
