Religious Education

Here at Benedict House, we believe the importance of encouraging our pupils to develop religious literacy, to learn from others, to reflect and analyse, to develop a sense of identity and belonging, and to respect and be sensitive towards others. We explore a wide variety of topics within Religious Education, including: world religions, values and beliefs, leadership, contemporary issues, significant people, saints, current affairs and moral dilemmas along with posing ‘big questions’ for the children to discuss and debate.

We visit centres of different worship (including our neighbouring church, Christ Church) in order to give the children some real-world insights into different faiths and we are fortunate to have parents willing to share their own religious practice by visiting us and telling us about it.

We are fortunate to have a very diverse range of religions celebrated within Benedict House, and we celebrate our religious diversity through whole school assemblies and opportunities for cross-curricular learning and celebrations.
