Religious Education is an important part of the school curriculum and is taught relevant to the child’s stage of development and experience. At Leesons, we seek to provide a clearer idea of what religion is about, the importance that it plays in many people’s lives and how that faith is expressed in their daily lives and routines. Through the teaching of Religious Education, we aim to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of all pupils.
Our curriculum reflects, celebrates and teaches children about diversity. In RE children learn about the six principal religions: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism. They compare and contrast the beliefs and customs of the religions studied. Christianity is taught in every year group, with Christmas and Easter given fresh treatment each year to develop the children’s learning progressively. In addition each year group learns about at least two of the other principal religions. Across the key stages they will have learned about all six religions.
