R.E.

Religious Education (R.E.)

At Michael Drayton Junior School we use the Warwickshire and Coventry agreed syllabus, selecting units which we feel is appropriate to the children in our school and the local area.  The subject knowledge which is delivered builds on previous units taught and gives children a wider understanding of different religions, equipping them with the skills to tolerate and respect others and their beliefs.

Aims

Our curriculum is planned to:

  • Develop tolerance and respect for different beliefs and ways in which other individuals choose to live their lives.
  • Encourage children to question and investigate key concepts, questions of belonging, meaning, purpose and truth.
  • Know and understand a range of world religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism.

 

The school has regular collective worship for all pupils which is of a broadly Christian nature. Throughout the year we also learn about the special events and celebrations that occur in other world religions.

If you wish to withdraw your child from R.E. and collective worship you may do so, but please contact the Headteacher first.
