They have a strong understanding of how the beliefs, values, practices and ways of life within any religion cohere together.

West Berkshire Locally Agreed Syllabus

RE should be taught to all pupils in full-time education in schools, except for those withdrawn at the written request of their parents. (RE in English Schools: Non-statutory guidance 2010, DCSF)

 

What is the purpose and aim of RE in schools?

 

The purpose of RE is to promote religious literacy. Religious literacy requires pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews and to use that knowledge to engage in informed and balanced conversations about religions and beliefs.

In addition to learning about religions and worldviews, RE offers pupils the chance to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally and to reflect on their own beliefs, being able to be discerning about the many attitudes and opinions they will encounter.
