It is the aim of Yohden Primary School to provide opportunities for all children to learn and achieve, regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability. The school curriculum aims to promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. At Yohden Primary School, we believe that RE has an important role to play as part of a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum to which all children are entitled. It provides a positive context in which diversity of cultures, beliefs and values in society can be celebrated and explores. RE provides an opportunity to promote an ethos of respect for others. Lessons ensure that all of our children grow to become tolerant and respectful citizens, who appreciate that everybody has their own set of beliefs and values and that these may differ from their own. Our curriculum encourages all children to ask and reflect on challenging questions and provides opportunities for personal reflection where children can explore their own beliefs and opinions in a safe and supportive environment. Through our teaching in RE, we aim to develop tolerance and respect for the different cultures and beliefs within our society, supporting British Values.
