KEY STAGE 3

The very nature of the subject means that we deal with the most contentious and difficult issues in society; issues of faith, tradition and culture. Through the use of enquiry students examine multiple faiths, such as Christianity, Islam and Sikhism. Within these areas they are given the opportunity to debate and consider issues from the world in which they live.

Religious Education offers many transferable skills to develop not only their knowledge and understanding, but the ability to support their views with reasoned argument and a variety of evidence. The ability to discuss and debate is highly valued and practice within the subject.

Students follow the curriculum by investigating different faiths and the impact a person’s faith can have on their life. The topics each involve the development of knowledge and skill across the years. Each topic sets our enquiry based questions providing students with the opportunity to develop key thinking and learning skills
