The intention for Religious Education - RE - at our school

Why Is RE important to learn?

We believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion so that they can have a deeper understanding of the world around them. We aim to develop pupil’s understanding of world faiths and of the beliefs exploring common ground and diversity. Religious Education plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. RE helps prepare pupils to become responsible citizens through developing an understanding of other’s beliefs that may differ to their own.

What Does RE at Hinchliffe Mill School look Like?

As a school, we follow the agreed syllabus across Kirklees and Calderdale. Across school, we begin to look in more detail at different religions and provide our children with opportunities to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. Our children develop the ability to ask significant and reflective questions about religion and demonstrate an understanding of issues related to the nature, truth and value of religion.  Whole school assemblies are also used as opportunities for us to think and reflect on different values and beliefs.

Visits to places of worship are undertaken where possible and visitors into school are encouraged and welcomed.
