Religious Education Vision Statement
At Southglade Primary and Nursery School the aim of Religious Education is to encourage respect for all beliefs and cultures as well as helping to contribute to the cultural capital that children need to succeed in life. Through weekly lessons and termly celebration days, children investigate and learn about different religions and worldviews, giving them the knowledge and understanding that they require in order to develop their own ideas, values and identities. This development of critical thinking skills enables the children to thoughtfully discuss and evaluate the religious diversity that they encounter, helping them to develop tolerance and empathy for a world of difference. Cross-curricular links are made wherever possible to inspire and motivate learners.
At Southglade Primary and Nursery School we follow 'The Agreed Syllabus for RE in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire', 'Religious Education For All', 2021-2026.
The aim of Religious Education in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire is that pupils will know about and understand a range of religions and world views. They will express ideas and insights of their own into the significant human questions which religions address, gaining and deploying the skills needed to study religion.
