Religious Education Statement of Intent
Within Religious Education, it is our intent at Cherry Dale Primary School to help our pupils to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in Great Britain. We aim to encourage children to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape life and our behaviour, develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Religious Education is taught throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and philosophy of the school. At Cherry Dale Primary School, Religious Education plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, particularly PSHE and SEAL, in promoting the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development of our children.
