Religious Education (RE) contributes dynamically to children and young people’s education in schools by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. In RE at Dringhouses, pupils learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
The aims of Religious Education at Dringhouses Primary School are to help the pupils to:
- Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions represented in the UK.
- Develop an open, sensitive and reflective approach to appreciating and respecting varied religious beliefs, values and practices.
- Relate what they learn to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues.
