RE at Gresham

The principal aim of teaching RE at Gresham is to enable pupils to understand and reflect upon the religious and spiritual beliefs, practices, insights and experiences of people all over the world.

We do this by planning opportunities for our pupils to explore and express their own responses and personal beliefs. Children will learn about a specific religion and what can be learnt from that religion as well as human experience.

There areas of 4 areas of study through which pupils learn: Authority and Worship, Sacred and Inspirational writings, Lifestyle and Celebrations and Challenge units. RE contributes significantly to other curriculum areas involving Citizenship, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development and can support investigations and enquiry about belief.
