Religious Education is at the heart of our school ethos. We are a Church of England School and achieved a ‘Good with outstanding elements’ SIAMS inspection.
As a school we aim to ensure that our children leave us prepared for the world as ‘Global Explorers’ equipped to live their lives ‘spiritually’ and aware of the major world religions ‘worldly’.
Being ‘spiritual’ is one of the big ideas in our curriculum. It is our aim that our children leave us spiritually awakened, both outwardly and inwardly. We aim for our children’s learning during RE lessons, to ensure that they are able to reflect on the natural world and human capacities and achievements. At the same time we want them to be able to look inwards on themselves to reflect on their beliefs, values, feelings, hopes, dreams and ‘aspirations’.
It is our intent that we give our children primarily an awareness of the Christian faith through a holistic teaching approach so that children have a coherent understanding of Christian beliefs and practices when they leave St Nicholas. However, the UK is increasingly multi-cultural and as such society is affected by many religious beliefs and practices – it is therefore, only right that we equip our young children with the education of these religions in order to foster a love and understanding of other religions and cultures from around the world. This means that they will grow up to be knowledgeable, responsible and compassionate citizens of the world – ‘worldly’.
