At Clapham Manor we aim to provide opportunities for pupils to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect and relate their learning in RE to their own experience, as well as ensuring they leave Clapham Manor Primary with a secure, informed core knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of religions and world views. Our teaching of a variety of skills and content aims to intellectually challenge, enrich and help children develop beliefs and values, and promotes the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society.
Children will adopt an enquiry- based approach beginning with their own life experience, explore challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs (religious or non-religious), self, issues of right and wrong, commitment and belonging. Through this exploration, they will develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity, other principal religions, and religious traditions that examine these questions, fostering personal reflection and spiritual development.
Our curriculum meets the requirements of our locally agreed syllabus and is aligned to the non- statutory guidance which actively promote diversity, enabling pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which help them to flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.
