Through our RE curriculum, we aim to explore and broaden the children’s experiences of people, beliefs and cultures that are different from their own. We want children to acknowledge and appreciate diversity, show respect for all faiths and focus on the similarities that unite people living in the UK, as well as across the world. We also intend for children to gain a better understanding of their own beliefs, the reasons for them and how we are connected to everything and everyone around us. In all aspects of school life, children are supported to develop spirituality by recognising their own feeling or sense that there is something greater than themselves, felt within, and beyond physical experience. Words given to this higher power might be God, nature, spirit, the universe, the creator, or other words that represent a divine presence.
