RE at Upton
The National Curriculum recognises that state schools must teach religious education to pupils at every key stage
Religious Education at Upton School is provided in line with the profile below:
- A curriculum which includes provision for religious education for all pupils registered at the school
- The religious education programme reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religious traditions represented in Great Britain.
We recognise the variety of religious and non-religious families from which our pupils come. We welcome and celebrate this diversity, are sensitive to the home background of each child and work to ensure that all pupils feel and are included in our RE programme.
In addition we recognise key religious festival throughout the year across different religions and actively promote the British Value of mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We believe that tolerance and understanding are crucial to a harmonious country and so across our assemblies, RE and PSHE lessons we aim to educate our children for this purpose.
