At Rainford CE, we aim to support pupils’ personal search by engaging with the question ‘What does it mean to be human?’ and exploring answers offered by religion and beliefs.

RE aims to help pupils to have the knowledge that will enable them to make reasoned and informed judgements about the religions and moral issues which arise from reflection on human experience and a study of religious belief and practice.

Our specific aims are to: 

  1. Provide a broad and balanced RE curriculum within the framework of statutory requirements and those of the locally agreed syllabus.
  2. Promote opportunities for the cultivation of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  3. Develop pupils’ knowledge and appreciation of Christianity and other principal religions in Great Britain.
  4. Support pupils in reflecting and thinking about fundamental human beliefs and values so that they can develop a personal framework by which to live.
