RE

The RE Department


Approach to Teaching

In the RE department we use a range of teaching approaches including:

·       Group and class discussion
·       Independent learning tasks
·       Project work
·       Philosophical enquiry
·       Personal reflection

We teach and encourage pupils to be able to express their own ideas and opinions whilst listening to and respecting the opinions of others.

We develop academic rigour in developing the skills of written communication in describing , explaining and evaluating ideas and opinions

We give opportunities for pupils to reflect on their own faith development and to reflect on the beliefs and values of the school, their peers and the wider community.
