Religious Education the Seahouses Way
To cultivate an enthusiasm for lifelong learning through a curriculum which reflects our rural and coastal context, adapting to the needs of our children- locally, nationally and globally.
At Seahouses Primary School we view Religious Education as an opportunity to celebrate the similarities and differences within our school and community. We believe that RE plays a significant role in the development of pupils’ spiritual, social and cultural growth. We explore themes of identity and belonging, self- awareness and reflection through a range of different religions.
Throughout their time at Seahouses, pupils develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of religions throughout the local community and wider world.
We want our children to ask significant and highly reflective questions about religion and demonstrate an excellent understanding of issues related to the nature, truth and value of religion. Above all, we want our children to develop a respect for other beliefs and religions and appreciate and celebrate the diverse world in which they live. We want to equip children with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the agreed Northumberland Religious Education Syllabus launched in June 2022, but to also prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We provide opportunities for all of our children to visit a range of places of worship throughout their time at Seahouses Primary school in an attempt to remove geographical barriers linked to our rural and coastal location and allow our children to tap into our County’s rich spiritual and cultural heritage.
