“A friendly study of the world’s religions is a sacred duty.”
What do we believe at Badger Hill?
At Badger Hill RE we view RE are being an important part of our curriculum because of the array of different religions we already have that make up our school. We teach the children about the religions that make up the world, thinking about their similarities and differences. Our teaching is further supported by the involvement of the Badger Hill community, with children and their families offering guidance in lessons involving their own religions. RE teaches us about the different beliefs of people that make up both our Badger Hill family and the world.
How do we achieve in RE at Badger Hill?
We aim for the RE element of our school curriculum to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage pupils, giving them the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions, explore different religious beliefs, values and traditions and develop a more rigorous understanding of the many religious traditions, beliefs and practices that are followed in our multi-cultural society.
We create lots of opportunities to enjoy and exhibit our RE skills and learning
We aim to help children create through our RE curriculum by teaching them how to make links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world. Through RE children are developing an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life, which they are then able to communicate to the wider community.
