Religious Education

Religious Education at St George's

 

 

We believe that RE in a Catholic school enriches every part of school life. Our Mission is to help our school community:

 

“Grow in faith and have faith in growing”

 

As a staff, we are dedicated to setting good examples and expressing our own faith in our teaching and through our care for pupils. We seek to enable our children to learn more about and appreciate the Catholic faith regardless of gender, cultural background or ability.

 

Religious education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people.

 

The aims of religious education are to help children:

  • Develop an awareness of spiritual and moral issues in life experiences;
  • Develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major world religions and value systems found in Britain;
  • Develop an understanding of what it means to be committed to a religious tradition;
  • Be able to reflect on their own experiences and to develop a personal response to the fundamental questions of life;
  • Develop an understanding of religious traditions and to appreciate the cultural differences in Britain today;
  • Develop investigative and research skills and to enable them to make reasoned judgments about religious issues;
  • Have respect for other peoples’ views and to celebrate the diversity in society.

 

At school, we follow the ‘Come and See’ programme as our core scheme of work. Our specific planning approach is taken from this scheme. This distinguishes RE from other subjects and so reminds us that RE is unique and special within our curriculum. 10% of curriculum time is devoted to Religious Education excluding assembly and Acts of Worship time, as advised by the Bishops of England and Wales.

 

We regard it as essential that our children develop an understanding and respect of other faiths, especially living in such a richly diverse city as Derby. In RE and through using the ‘Come and See’ scheme, we study the main religions of the world. 

Policies

During the school closures and other restrictions that are in place as a result of COVID-19, we have taken to delivering our whole school Acts of Worship times online.
