Religious Education

At The Churchside Federation we explore Religion and its impact through a series of enquiries. This may be religion specific e.g. How do Hindus express beliefs about God? or cover a subject that is multi-faith e.g. How does celebration bring a community together?

We cover the theology of a religion (how a faith worships and the stories associated with a faith), the social and human sciences of a religion (how a religion impacts on a believer’s life and what they do) and philosophy (what a faith believes and the different views within this). We have a series of Age Related Expectations that suggest what children should be able to discuss for each Year group.

We strive to make Religious Education a fun and engaging subject with debates, role play, enjoying different celebrations and pilgrimages that enhance the children’s understanding and respect of different faiths around the world.
