RE at Westminster
Lead: Lis Pennington
At Westminster Primary Academy, we believe in developing children’s understanding and knowledge of RE. We encourage children to engage with religious festivals, artefacts, visitors and visits to religious communities in order to develop a deeper understanding of religion. We encourage children to think about moral issues and their own beliefs within RE. We challenge children to try to think from different perspectives so that they may have a better understanding of those around them.
In early years, we celebrate and teach religious festivals throughout the year.
Key stage one and two, study various religions within each half term showing progression throughout school but still maintain the celebration and teaching of festivals throughout the school year.
