Statement of Intent
At Worthinghead, we believe that the study of RE is an important part of developing children’s sense of identity and belonging and their understanding of the communities in which they and others live. We aim to raise their awareness, respect and understanding of others, including people with different faiths and beliefs and prejudices they may face, so that by the end of Key Stage 2, they can make increasingly mature judgements about the world around them.
