Our school community is made up of staff and pupils who originate from many different nationalities, cultures and faith groups. As a school we aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils, including new arrivals and non English speakers.
We believe that Religious Education provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences within our school and the wider world. It is a subject that celebrates diversity and challenges stereotypes enabling children to become citizens of the world.
Within our school we follow the Haringey Agreed Syllabus scheme of work with the aim to develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of religious faiths within our school community, the local area, and the wider world. Through our teaching of R.E we believe that children will be prepared for life in modern Britain. They learn about tolerance and develop a greater respect for other faiths; this can be achieved not only in a classroom setting, but also through visits to religious buildings and through whole school assemblies.
Some examples of the topics we teach are
- Christianity – The Stories Jesus told
- Christianity – Why Christians celebrate Easter
- Christianity – Advent
- Christianity – Who was Jesus?
- Islam – Ramadan
- Hinduism – Diwali
- Sikhism – Guru Nanak’s Birthday
- Judaism – Hanukkah
