Religious Education

Religious Education plays a vital role in the education of the whole child. It helps children to think for themselves, to question and to evaluate. It promotes children’s reflective skills and promotes respect, sensitivity and self-esteem – good preparation for adult life and a more tolerant society.  

 

Tolerance plays a vital part of peace in our world today. By educating our children to accept and understand the diversity within the main religions of today; by allowing them to explore their own beliefs and experiences and allowing them to respond to questions and issues within, we can hopefully nurture a more positive attitude towards ‘different’ others   = tolerance.
