We value the spiritual life of children, so we embrace an open-ended and exploratory approach in schools when exploring Christian values and Bible stories through the creative arts.
We believe that the best way to understand faith is to explore it 'from the inside', encouraging children to imaginatively enter stories so they can understand something of the dilemmas, delights, doubts and certainties experienced by people of faith.
No assumptions are made about prior knowledge or expectations concerning personal belief; instead, children are encouraged to immerse themselves in key faith stories so they can ask questions, suggest possible answers to dilemmas - and engage with Christian beliefs in a non-confrontational and frequently light-hearted way that supports RE, PSE and SMSC.
Appropriate differentiation is made in style and content to allow for pupil age and ability.
As members of the Religious Education Council of England and Wales, we support and adhere strictly to its eight principles for teachers of Religious Education.
