Why is RE successful at Handale?
- Children respect one another and are sensitive to others, especially those with faiths and beliefs different to their own.
- We have faith focused assemblies delivered by school staff with confidence of content.
- We hold regular conversations with children with regards to RE being taught identifying knowledge gained, their own opinions and their sensitivity to the opinions of others with regards to religion choice and world view.
- Well resourced RE lessons are delivered fortnightly with a focus on increasing children’s knowledge and awareness of different religions and worldviews.
- Thoughts and opinions of the children are considered alongside raising their ability to respond to questions with an RE focus.
