Religious Studies

At Colfe’s, children learn about the six major faiths of Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism.

RE is an important part of the school curriculum and is taught relevant to the child’s stage of development and experience. We seek to provide a clearer idea of what religion is about, the importance that it plays in many people’s lives and how that faith is expressed in their daily lives and routines.

The overall aims are:

  • That all children form their own opinions about religious beliefs and customs and that they develop an understanding and tolerance of people who hold a strong faith.
  • That children develop a sense of awe and wonder about the world around them.
  • To help pupils understand some of the impact of religion throughout the world, its influences on the lives of individuals and communities and its effect on the cultural diversity of their own and other societies both presently and in the past.
  • To support pupils spiritual, moral social and cultural development by encouraging self
    awareness and self respect.
  • To help pupils develop their social and moral development by encouraging a positive attitude and valuing the beliefs of others, however different from their own.

Assemblies are broadly Christian, exploring themes such as friendship, perseverance and tolerance. We learn about famous people and traditions from around the world.
