“We may have different religions, different languages, different coloured skin, but we all belong to one human race.” Kofi Annan.
Religious education is provided in line with and meets statutory requirements, which are in accordance with the locally agreed syllabus for Durham County.
Through this agreed syllabus, children explore shared human experiences and raise questions to the meaning and purpose of those experiences. Teaching and activities develop knowledge and understanding of religion through exploration of the beliefs and practices of the principal world faiths represented in Great Britain. We aim to develop children’s knowledge and understanding of religious and non-religious views, as well as develop the skills of critical thinking and personal reflection. Through this, we promote awareness, respect and sensitivity for the traditions of other people.
