At Whitwick St John the Baptist, Religious Education is an important part of the curriculum. As a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) School, we feel it appropriate to emphasise Christianity as the basis for Religious Education, but recognise the need for children to understand and respect other faiths and life styles, and to develop their own values and beliefs.
As a Church of England school, our RE curriculum follows the Leicestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education supported by the Diocese of Leicester. We believe it supports our vision, values and whole school drivers and ensures the subject is taught systematically and progressively.
At Whitwick St John the Baptist, RE encourages and assists all pupils to explore and express their own response to the spiritual and religious approaches to life.
Our pupils are provided with opportunities to understand the beliefs, practices and values that affect people’s ways of life, encourages reflective, caring attitudes and helps to develop an awareness of life’s spiritual dimension.
Mrs Purdy ensures that all the aspects of the RE Curriculum is taught and implemented effectively.
If you would like to find out more about our RE curriculum please contact Mrs Purdy
