The importance of Religious Education (RE) is valued and carefully considered at Reignhead Primary School. We want to ensure our pupils have an awareness and understanding of the beliefs and cultures within and beyond their community and equip them with essential skills that will support their enquiry and response to significant questions posed by religion and world views.
We feel that it promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection.
It is also necessary to acknowledge that some of our pupils will have had less experience of the diversity that their community has to offer. Therefore, RE becomes a very special opportunity to create this link and begin the journey towards broadening their cultural experiences.
Here at Reignhead, the children get involved in many religious celebrations such as Harvest festival, Christingle, and Easter assemblies.
