Here at Creswell Junior school we are committed to offering a progressive RE curriculum that adopts enquiry-based teaching and learning, meeting the needs of all children and motivating enthusiasm for learning.
Religious Education at Creswell respects and promotes each child’s desire to gain knowledge through their own wonder, while raising aspirations and widening their understanding to the world beyond their immediate environment. This in turn will develop their knowledge and understanding of all members of our rich and diverse community. We believe that Religious Education is a key player in stimulating knowledge and understanding which can lead to tolerance and respect for others traditions, beliefs and backgrounds.
Throughout our RE curriculum there are opportunities for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development at an appropriate level of challenge for their age. Our RE curriculum encourages evaluation and critical thinking, equipping them to consider belief positions they encounter, contributing significantly to understanding British Values. We encourage children to develop positive attitudes towards those values and to reflect and relate their learning in RE to their own experience.
