Welcome to Religious Education in Lydiate Primary and Nursery School!
We believe that our high quality teaching of RE contributes to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children in link to our school motto of Inspire, Achieve and Prepare for Life. RE contributes to our pupils’ personal development and appreciation of community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and acceptance for different faiths and beliefs in a diverse society. In order for our children to achieve well in RE they need to be encouraged to consider challenging questions, explore their own beliefs, build their own sense of identify and belonging, develop respect for others and consider their responsibilities in life now and in the future.
We aim to:
- Inspire our children about RE; promote academic and personal achievement/development through RE and to help prepare our children for life in a diverse society with many different faiths/beliefs;
- Contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children thus promoting a caring school community cohesion;
- Develop respect and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different to our own.
