The primary intent of our Religious Education (R.E.) curriculum at Cleves is to embed an understanding of the world’s religions, traditions, practices, and beliefs. This includes providing pupils with knowledge about various faiths, promoting tolerance, and encouraging respect for diverse perspectives. Our curriculum aims to promote the spiritual, moral, social, emotional, cultural and intellectual development of pupils and of society by encouraging an exploration of and response to those aspects of religion and human experience which raise fundamental questions of belief and value.
Furthermore, we strive to nurture moral and ethical development, helping pupils appreciate the values and principles associated with different religions, contributing to their overall cultural and global awareness.
In addition to developing an understanding of the world’s religions, a primary goal of our curriculum is to help pupils identify and make sense of both religious and non-religious beliefs and concepts. This involves exploring the meanings of these beliefs within their respective traditions and recognising the diversity of interpretations.
Our R.E lessons are personalised to guide pupils in understanding how and why sources of authority are used, expressed, and interpreted in different ways across various belief systems.
This multifaceted approach encourages critical thinking and a sophisticated comprehension of the role of beliefs in shaping individuals and societies.
