RE at St Luke’s serves to enhance the pupil’s spiritual and moral development through investigating Christianity and other major world faiths. We teach the pupils about key Christian beliefs and practices, exploring what it means to be a Christian through sensitively asking and answering questions. We teach the pupils about different religions so that they can gain an understanding of important religious festivals and how they are celebrated. At St Luke’s we aim to teach pupils to be curious and interested in different faiths and cultures, while showing respect for them. We intend to encourage pupils to be reflective and use their enquiry skills to explore their own beliefs, values and experiences. Through the teaching of RE we aim for pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which will help them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society. RE is a key subject to drive forward our Christian vision, supporting the Christian ethos and teaching throughout the whole Curriculum and reinforcing the school’s Core Values of Acceptance, Forgiveness and Responsibility.
