Religious Education (RE)
Religious Education is part of the rich education at Godstone Primary and Nursery School. The teaching of Religious Education is essential for our children and the development of their cultural capital, whilst helping to educate them in British Values, especially the ‘mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith’. It will help them to grow into caring adults who make positive contributions to society. As the religious beliefs of our children and families at Godstone Primary and Nursery School are expanding, it is important that children learn and begin to understand that others are different to themselves. It helps children develop an acceptance that others may be different to themselves, rather than fear or ridicule these differences. Religious Education supports the other subjects in the curriculum, with links being used, whilst both religious knowledge and skills are being taught.
