Our enriching curriculum reflects the multifaith society we live in. It helps children learn to enquire, reason and reflect. This helps each child develop their own values and beliefs. They learn respect for the religious and moral values of others.
The importance of Religious Education
RE helps children become aware of spiritual and moral issues. Pupils learn about major world religions and value systems found in Britain. They learn what it means to be committed to a religious tradition. The subject teaches children to respect other peoples’ views and to celebrate diversity. They also learn to reflect on their own experiences. They develop a personal response to the fundamental questions of life.
Religious Education at Seaford Primary School
Children learn about Christianity and other world religions. These include the faiths of children within our school. We address fundamental questions like the meaning of life and the existence of a divine spirit.
Often, we teach RE embedded in Learning Adventures. They use stories and include drama, art, literacy, geography and history.
Children explore RE through six themes:
- beliefs and questions
- symbols and religious expressions
- celebrations (Christmas)
- inspirational people, leaders and teachers
- celebrations (Easter)
- the individual, family and community
We celebrate major religious festivals in school assemblies. We welcome members of different world faiths to participate in school life. We build positive relationships with local churches and faith groups.
What our children say about Religious Education
