The contribution of religious education to the school curriculum:

“Religious education actively promotes the values of truth, justice, respect for all and care of the environment.  It places specific emphasis on:

  • pupils valuing themselves and others
  • the role of family and the community in religious belief and activity
  • the celebration of diversity in society through understanding similarities and differences
  • sustainable development of the earth

Religious education also recognises the changing nature of society, including changes in religious practice and expression, and the influence of religion in the local, national and global community.”
