The aim of RE teaching at Wansbeck is to develop pupils’ awareness and respect of cultural and religious beliefs within the wider community.
This begins in EYFS, where children focus on special people and events within their own lives, and familiar celebrations.
Other cultural and religious beliefs are then introduced through stories. This builds up in further key stages, firstly looking at familiar celebrations and festivals, and then introducing celebrations of other faiths through an enquiry based approach.
Children learn to respect and value their own and other people’s cultures and beliefs.
