Religious Education Intent Statement
At Maun Infant and Nursery School, we believe that Religious Education is an important subject as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. It has a crucial role in developing children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Through our lessons we will promote respect, understanding and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourage our children to develop their own sense of identity.
Children will have opportunities to: -
know about and understand religions and worldviews,
express their ideas and insights into religions and worldviews,
gain and deploy the skills for learning from religions and world views.
We want children to learn about and learn from Religions.
