RE at Yohden Primary
It is the aim of Yohden Primary School to provide opportunities for all children to learn and to achieve, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or ability. The school curriculum aims to promote pupils’ 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 pupils are entitled. It provides a positive context in which the diversity of cultures, beliefs and values in society can be celebrated and explored. 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 of RE, we aim to develop tolerance and respect for the different cultures and beliefs within our society, supporting British values.
