Religious Education

Religious Education provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life.  It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the main religions and religious traditions.  RE enables our pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.  We teach pupils to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs which helps them to challenge prejudice.  RE teaching at Holywell prompts pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to the wider society.  It encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.

We aim to provide an outstanding RE curriculum, which allows our children to embrace the diverse global community in which they live.  Through a broad range of cross-curricular opportunities, our children experience world religions and learn to live respectfully together.
