Religious Education

Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. Religious Education is an important subject in itself, developing an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of contemporary society. Religious Education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human.

Religious Education can:

  • Develop students’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, of other principal religions, other religious traditions and worldviews.
  • Contributes to personal development and well-being and to community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society.
  • Contribute to many other parts of the school curriculum such as citizenship, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE education) the humanities and science.
  • Provide opportunities for personal reflection, deepening the understanding of the significance of religion in the lives of others – individually, communally and cross-culturally.

Religious Education at Haygrove is not about recommending any particular faith as superior to others, it is not about indoctrination, but rather it is about encouraging the development of lively, enquiring minds and curiosity about, and respect for, the opinions and beliefs of other people and cultures. In Year 7 the course aims to develop a sense of curiosity about, and respect for, humanity and the world around us and students are encouraged to explore and respect different beliefs. Yeare 8 builds on this programme, encouraging students to question and make sense of the world. In Year 9 the focus is on developing students' ability to handle abstract concepts and an appreciation of their place in the world by encouraging self-reflection and an opportunity to evaluate and challenge things they may see as wrong.

All parents have a right to withdraw their children from Religious Education at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
