At Corton Primary, Religious Education is taught weekly as a distinct academic subject.
From Reception to Year 6 year there is a focus on Christianity plus the opportunity for pupils to learn and evaluate their own views on other world religions.
RE enables pupils to know about and understand Christianity as a living faith that influences the lives of people worldwide and as the religion that has most shaped British culture and heritage.
RE intends to promote religious understanding and respect, and to challenge prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping.
We strongly believe that the purpose of RE is about religious literacy. This means we aim for children to be able to hold a balanced and well-informed conversation about religion and belief. In order to fulfil this purpose we provide a balance of theology, philosophy and human/social sciences within our RE lessons.
