Religious education has an important role in preparing pupils for adult life, employment and lifelong learning. It enables pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others. It promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice.
At King’s Hedges School children acquire and develop knowledge of Christianity and other principle religions in the UK. We look at beliefs, values and traditions from our own communities and other cultures. We aim to develop positive attitudes of respect towards other people who hold beliefs different from our own.
We encourage openness to ask questions, reflect and search for meaning and purpose for themselves. RE is taught through an interactive day of learning using questions posed by the Cambridgeshire Agreed Syllabus 2013. These days are fun and engaging and we particularly like to welcome visitors into school to help us learn and reflect.
We often use our philosophical skills to develop our own sense of identity and belonging. We aim to provide opportunity for pupils to flourish individual, then within their communities and then as citizens in the wider community.
