Religious Education at Kenton Primary
Religious Education provokes challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, ultimate reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. We want our children to understand and appreciate our world and the people that live in it. We want RE to enable all children to understand and celebrate each other’s differences as well as share and discover their similarities. Children will be taught the vital knowledge needed so that they can appreciate and celebrate diversity, show respect and work cohesively together as one community. Children should feel confident to challenge stereotypes and misconceptions about themselves and others. All children will have the opportunity to learn through first hand experiences and be provided with memories that will shape their lives today and in the future.
