Highcliffe St Mark Primary School
Religious Education Vision Statement
Through our teaching of R.E. at Highcliffe St Mark, we aim to nurture an attitude of respect and understanding for the many faiths in an increasingly diverse world, as well as a knowledge of these religions and how they impact people’s lives. As a church school we spend a higher proportion of time looking at Christian beliefs and teachings whilst also learning about other world religions, such as Judaism, Hinduism and Islam.
We want to prepare our pupils for this world of diversity, to develop an understanding of their own sense of identity, self-worth and belonging, before looking beyond themselves. We encourage our children to question and reflect on how people are formed by their beliefs and how significant the knowledge of these beliefs is in us and yet still to live harmoniously alongside each other.
