Religious and Moral Education

Religious and Moral Education enables students to explore the world’s major religions and views which are independent of religious beliefs.  It allows consideration of the challenges posed by these beliefs and values.

Learning in this curricular area allows students to develop and reflect upon their own values and their capacity for moral judgement.  It allows an awareness and appreciation of the value of each individual in a diverse society and engenders responsible attitudes towards others.  This awareness and appreciation allows us to challenge prejudice and intolerance.

The aim is to provide an environment of creativity and innovation, to

  • Take account of and value religious and cultural diversity within our community
  • Develop, through knowledge and understanding, discussion and debate, an ability to understand other people’s beliefs
  • Encourage the development of enquiry and critical thinking skills
  • Recognise and build on connections with other curricular areas
  • Make appropriate use of technology
  • Provide opportunities for collaborative and individual learning
