Not only does RE teach children about different religious traditions and to understand and consider faith issues, it also teaches children the importance of equality, acceptance and diversity. RE and RRSA come hand in hand and it is an embedded mantra at Egremont primary school and at the heart of all we do. From school assemblies, lessons and how staff and students conduct themselves in and outside of school; we believe that RE should help guide children morally and through the choices they make.
RE enables pupils to consider and respond to a range of important questions related to their own spiritual development, the development of values and attitudes and fundamental questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life. 'Whenever I come out of RE my head is exploding with questions and my whole body aches – this is not because I don’t understand – it is because I’m buzzing with new thoughts.'
