R.E

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

 

St. Luke's, through its church values and inclusive vision, celebrates diversity and difference, nurtures children's academic, emotional and spiritual growth. Through the teachings of Christ, we promote love, forgiveness, compassion, patience, trust, thankfulness and friendship. We follow the Questful R.E syllabus with the Bury Agreed syllabus. We also use Understanding Christianity to support our staff with their teaching.

 

Our journey seeks:

 

  • To present engagingly a comprehensive content which is the basis of knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith;
  • To enable pupils continually to deepen their religious and theological understanding and to be able to communicate this effectively;
  • To present a faithful vision of the Church’s moral and social teachings so that pupils can understand the underlying trends in culture and society;
  • To raise pupils’ awareness of the faith and traditions of other religious communities in order to respect and understand them;
  • To be able to make links between pupils’ own faith and that of the Christian Church;
  • To enable pupils’ awareness of the Christian faith so that they can apply the teachings to their daily life;
  • To stimulate pupils’ imagination and provoke a personal meaning towards the Christian faith;
  • To enable pupils to relate the knowledge gained in Religious Education to their understanding of other subjects in the curriculum;
  • To bring clarity to the relationship between faith and life, and between faith and culture.
