Religious Education

Sudbourne Primary School serves a community built upon the diversity of its nationalities, cultures and faiths. As a school we aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils.

We aim to ensure that our pupils develop a positive attitude towards other people and to respect their right to hold different beliefs to their own.

Our curriculum encourages the development of a positive ethos, both within the school and the communities' around and, aims to allow pupils to grow and develop in their search for values.

During their time at Sudbourne, pupils will:

  • Develop a knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and the other principle religions represented in Great Britain (Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism).
  • Have the opportunity, time and space to share views and feelings and to discuss issues raised in the light of beliefs of the religions studied.
  • Have the opportunity to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences so that they may develop their own views as believers or non-believers.

We recognise that experiences at home can be used to develop learning in school and encourage children and parents to participate in the sharing of knowledge, views and feelings about their own religion, culture and celebrations.
