RE (up to GCSE)
Vision for Religious Education
The vision for Religious Education at St George’s is to be a subject at the heart of the curriculum, enabling pupils to flourish academically, morally and spiritually. Religious Education will make a valuable contribution to a broad, stimulating curriculum, leading to well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage in their lives.
Religious Education is a subject that every child will take for GCSE and opportunities for study will be provided from Early Years through to Sixth Form. The curriculum will focus predominantly on Christianity, but will include a range of other worldviews, both religious and non-religious.
Our aims and vision are informed by the school curriculum vision, the Kent Agreed Syllabus principal aim for RE (below) and Church of England Statement of Entitlement.
"The principal aim of RE, is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own". (KAS, 2018)
