At our school, Religious Education makes a distinctive contribution to children’s learning by enabling them to reflect upon themselves as whole people using their senses, their minds and their developing conscience or sense of religious spirit.

 

The purpose of religious education is to help pupils understand the importance of religion and its contribution to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  Religious education does not seek to urge religious beliefs on children or to compromise the integrity of their own beliefs by promoting one religion over another.  It is not the same as collective worship which has its own place within school life.

 

At Biddick Primary and Nursery School, every child has a statutory entitlement to Religious Education and it is expected that during all Key stages a secular world view will be taught as appropriate through the Religious Education curriculum.
