Religious Education (RE) at Treloar School fosters in students a reflective approach to life, enabling and enriching this process through their study of living faiths.
Students will develop respect and open-mindedness to reflect on what is both familiar and different. They will become independent and responsible members of a society who understand and explore big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that they can make sense of religion. Students will become more self-aware and be able to reflect on their own and others ideas and ways of living and develop resilience, empathy and tolerance when responding to others. Students are provided with opportunities for them to learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts, to discover, discuss, be curious and explore and consider different answers to these questions. They will be equipped with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. These skills will enable students to collaborate and participate positively in our society, with its diverse religions and worldviews. The curriculum also promotes connectedness which enhances self-esteem and well-being.
It is recognised that in special schools it is good practice to embed religious education into the wider curriculum in order to maximise opportunities to make connections and consolidate children’s engagement in systematic and informed ways with the different dimensions, manifestations, words and concepts of religious traditions and practices.
