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.

This week in RE we have been learning about How do Christians show they care and made connections with our own religions in class. #smithdownre
We enjoyed some apple and honey this afternoon in celebration of Rosh Hashanah as we are learning about Judaism this term #smithdownre @SmithdownPrimY2
In 2SR on Friday, we began our new R.E. Judaism topic. We started by looking at the word “precious” and brought in items from home that were precious to us #smithdownre @SmithdownPrimY2
A gorgeous last morning in @SmithdownPrimY4 looking at Marriage in R.E. We discussed vows and then decided to define what love is to us and others. Some very mature ideas. Well done Y4! ⭐️ #smithdownre
