At All Saints Academy we believe that Religious Education (RE) is not one subject among many, but the foundation of each child's learning journey. The beliefs and values it communicates inspire and unite every aspect of school life. Religious Education presents pupils with the same academic and personal demands and challenges as any other curriculum area.
Religious Education reflects the overarching values of the school curriculum, actively promoting the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical and intellectual development of the individual, and, as a result, enhancing their well being.
As a Church of England School, we believe that RE should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life as active citizens. Our pupils are growing up in a multicultural nation which has Christianity as its main religion, so due consideration will be given to other faiths, ensuring respect, tolerance and understanding of all the major world faiths. Religious Education lessons frequently contribute to cross-curricular teaching and other school activities. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE lessons if their own religious beliefs make this necessary. If you wish to withdraw you child, please contact the Head Teacher.
