Religious Education at Westmoor Primary
Religious Education at Westmoor Primary Information
In the Early Years, Religious Education appears within the context of carefully chosen themes, sometimes integrated with other areas of the curriculum. It begins with the known, finding out about themselves, their environment and their relationships, with the aim of developing both moral and spiritual awareness. Children are helped to appreciate what religion is about and make their own personal response to it. All children during the school year are involved in different work concerned with Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Children at KS1 also study aspects of major faiths, in particular Judaism. Children at KS2 will study elements of most major religions. All religious teaching is devised in accordance with the LEA Agreed Syllabus. Parents have the statutory right to withdraw children from the teaching of RE.
