Religious and Moral Education

Religious and moral education will allow your child to explore the world's major religions and other belief groups.


Your child will think about the challenges presented by these beliefs and values, and their place in the world. They will explore how religious and other belief groups' beliefs and values are expressed through traditions in religion, society and cultures. Your child will think about their own beliefs and values. It will support them to develop moral decision-making skills.

Your child will develop a better understanding of themselves, others and the wider world. Your child will develop their awareness that beliefs, values, practices and traditions are important to families, communities and society - locally and globally. They will develop a richer understanding of the world in which they live.


In religious and moral education children will develop important life skills such as investigation, analysis and evaluation. They will develop their thinking skills as well as skills of reflection. This will help them to develop a fuller understanding of others, the world in which they live and their potential contribution to it.


Special arrangements will be made for pupils whose parents do not wish them to participate in religious observance.
