Religious Education (RE) 2021 - 2022

‘We are all different, which is great because we are all unique. Without diversity, life would be boring!’ – Catherine Pulsifer
 

At Boundary Primary School, we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion, so that they can understand the world around them. Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. We encourage that all pupils will be curious in order to gain a better understanding about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences; this will enable our children to understand the importance of tolerance and will help build them of good character. Through the teaching of Religious Education, our curriculum is enhanced further with trips to places of worship in our local area and for visitors to come and share their personal experience of following a particular religion.

We follow The Lancashire Agreed Syllabus as a basis for our curriculum.
