What are the aims of teaching Religious Education?
At St John's, we follow the RE agreed syllabus for Warwickshire and Coventry which has three main aims:
- To know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews
- To express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews
- To gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews
Throughout RE we will explore a variety of thought provoking questions about meaning and purpose, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it is to be human. We will learn from religions and worldviews in national and global contexts to discover and explore different answers to these questions.
