Smithdown School is made up of children who originate from many 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-native English speakers. We believe that Religious Education (RE) 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.
- To help our children develop respect and sensitivity for all people
- To help our children understand faith and moral codes to guide them and develop informed opinions
- To help our children develop an understanding of modern multi-cultural Britain and how this is reflected in their lives and local community
- To help our children understand more about the importance of religion in today’s world.
