Religious Education Vision Statement

Religious Education helps children to reflect on their personal values and to understand how people of different backgrounds or beliefs may share similar or differing values. The children at New Mill Schools are taught about a range of religions and learn to respect and ask questions about different religions, traditions and cultures around the world.

Across the school year we aim to make R.E. relevant by studying and celebrating real events. We believe children learn best from real experiences in order to capture their imaginations and encourage curiosity. Children exhibit their religious education in many ways, from dance, creativity, writing and role-play in order to fully immerse children in understanding a topic. This holistic and creative learning allows children to celebrate diversity and become tolerant of others’ views. Questions are constantly being asked of children whilst allowing them to ask their own questions in order to develop their critical thinking, self-belief and self-confidence. This also allows children to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness.
