'RE has the potential, more than any other subject, to have the most powerful and lasting effect on the child’s heart and mind.'
Religious Education Curriculum at Padiham Green
The aim of Religious Education (R.E.) at Padiham Green is to allow all our learners to explore and develop a relationship with God and Jesus as well as explore other major world faiths. The curriculum that we follow is based on The Blackburn Dioceses Questful R.E.
R.E. is a great subject to drive forward our Christian vision and allows all pupils to develop an understanding of faith and encourages children to value themselves and celebrate other cultures within our community.
RE equips children with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief in order for them to reflect on their own ideas of living. This significantly contributes to children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and well-being.
Through R.E., pupils develop a mutual respect for other religions and cultures which is a key British value. R.E. encourages deeper thinking skills to explore issues in the world around them and equips them with the knowledge and skills to enable them to hold balanced and informed conversations about religions and world views.
