R.E at St John’s

Intent

SELF – At this school we want children to recognise and develop their own beliefs. We want them to grow in their understanding of what is important to them and why. We want them to learn more about the Christian ethos of our school.

OTHERS – We are proactive in exposing our pupils to people from a range of religious communities and teach them about religious beliefs from Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism.

WIDER WORLD – Pupils at St John’s are taught that religion is a subject that impacts local, national and international communities. Our aim is to prepare them to be tolerant of people from different religious backgrounds and become a respectful member of their community.
