Religious Education (RE)
At Blenheim, we are very proud of our multicultural and diverse school. Our school promotes tolerance and respect for all religious beliefs, faiths and values throughout the curriculum and especially within RE. Children are able to engage and discuss their own beliefs, morals and values within lessons in a respectful environment. Lessons may include reference to all faiths at any stage, however the core religions will be studied in depth - Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Non-religious world views and Sikhism. RE plays an important role in preparing our children for their future, for employment and lifelong learning and it enhances their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
There are three main broad aims throughout the RE curriculum:
1. Investigate the beliefs and practices of religions and other world views.
2. Investigate how religions and other world views address questions of meaning, purpose and value.
3. Investigate how religions and other world views influence morality, identity and diversity.
