Religious Education

Our Curriculum Intent- Religious Education


At Whitefield Infant School, religious education aims to prepare our children for life, in the increasingly diverse society in which they live. They acquire the necessary knowledge and skills so that they can respect religious and cultural differences and contribute to life in modern Britain.  Pupils learn to articulate their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences and respect the views of others. Religious education does not seek to promote religious beliefs on pupils by promoting one religion over another. Instead, it allows pupils the opportunity to make sense of their own place in the world.


Religious Education is provided for all children as part of the curriculum and is taught in accordance with the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.


R.E lessons offer a chance for children to explore beliefs and practices of major world faiths.  Visits to places of worship, handling artefacts and visits from practising members of different faiths enhance children’s understanding of our society, while developing their understanding, tolerance and respect for the beliefs of others.
