Living and Learning with Faith, Friendship and Fun

Subject leader: Izzy Hammond

Religious Education at Charing CE Primary School seeks to enable our learners to become aware of their own beliefs and values and to develop a positive attitude towards people who hold religious beliefs or views different from their own. Through a predominantly Christian curriculum, we aim to support pupils in developing their understanding of Christianity and other principal world religions, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it. We encourage learners to consider the ways in which a person’s beliefs influence their behaviour and practices and apply these insights to their own lives and communities. Children are encouraged to explore questions arising from the study of all religions and share their own ideas, experiences and beliefs so as to promote their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from some parts of, or all of, Religious Education. If you wish to discuss this, please contact the office to arrange a meeting with Mrs Hammond.
