At Watchfield Primary School, Religious Education is an opportunity to engage, inspire and challenge pupils to develop their understanding about the world around them. Children learn about multiple faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism, as well as exploring non-religious world views. We encourage our pupils to ask questions and engage with their peers to form reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues, allowing them to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences.
Our Religious Education Curriculum explores broad and wide-ranging worldviews, investigating the ways in which religious practice and belief informs and influences society. This subject provides a foundation for further learning within other subjects, including Science, Geography and PSHE. Social interactions and confidence are developed as pupils challenge each other and themselves, discovering their own opinions and respecting the views and choices of others.
We are proud of our diverse, multi-cultural, multi-faith and inclusive environment. Watchfield School provides a unique opportunity for children to share their experiences and beliefs, developing a deeper understanding of society, not only within Britain but internationally. The distinct nature of Watchfield is advantageous to our Religious Education Curriculum, and the sharing of cultures promotes respect, sensitivity and inclusivity; linking home, school and our community.
