The aims of Religious Education in church schools are:
• To enable pupils to encounter Christianity as the religion that shaped British culture and heritage
• To enable pupils to learn about the other major religions, their impact on culture and politics, art and history, and on the lives of their adherents
• To develop understanding of religious faith as the search for and expression of truth
• To contribute to the development of pupils’ own spiritual / philosophical convictions, exploring and enriching their own faith and beliefs
Through enquiry based, challenging and engaging RE pupils are enabled to recognise the impact that faith has in society and encouraged to explore the Big Questions of life.
To enable schools in the Diocese of Oxford to achieve and surpass these aims we have a dedicated RE adviser and we provide resources and training to improve the impact of RE in schools.
