At Weston Park Primary School and Weston Shore Infant School our families, staff and pupils are linked with many parts of the world and faith groups. We aim to celebrate diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils.
Religious Education (RE)
How RE is taught at Weston Park Primary School and Weston Shore Infant School
We aim to celebrate diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils.
We believe that Religious Education (RE) provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences at the academy and in the wider world. We are very grateful to our families who support their children’s learning of other faiths, as this is the way we can bring tolerance, respect and understanding to our future world.
The Religious Education curriculum, is linked to a scheme called Living Difference. Pupils learn about all aspects of religious education, which involves learning about different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own.
We look at all faiths including Christianity, Islam and being a Muslim, Sikhism and Hinduism.
SMSC and philosophy in RE
SMSC stands for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. This is at the heart of our curriculum and we want our children to make safe choices and develop a deep spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. We actively look for links to this.
We also teach P4C, Philosophy for Children, and we want our children to have the chance to discuss and debate in an open-minded manner.
