Religious Education

Intent Statement for Religious Education

At Cheriton Primary School, RE is taught in accordance with the Hampshire County Council’s ‘Living Difference’ document through which the children will gain a deeper understanding of many different religions alongside Christianity.

Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  As a result of their RE learning, children will show respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and will have developed their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection.  The children will have engaged in an enquiry approach where they will develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.

  Religions are different roads converging to the same point.

What does it matter that we take different roads as long as

We reach the same goal? In reality, there are as many different religions as there are individuals.
