The aim of the Religious Studies Department is to help pupils develop an informed, reflective, critical and articulate understanding of the beliefs of the different world faiths.
Students’ development of a sense of empathy, respect and awareness of the different beliefs and values within society especially in today’s multi-faith Britain is essential if they are to develop as well rounded people who are free from ignorance, fear, prejudice and discrimination.
Religious Education enables students to develop the skills that help them build their own beliefs and identity and also the skills required to live and work in a multi-faith community.
This aim is pursued through the study of Religious Studies as an academic subject for all year groups and by all pupils, concentrating on two learning objectives in all lessons: learning about (AT2) and learning from (AT1) that particular religion.
The RE curriculum at Moreton School encourages students to explore different beliefs, attitudes and values from a wide range of perspectives.
