Religious Education at St George’s School provides opportunities for pupils to think about their own beliefs and values in the light of the beliefs of others, both religious and non religious, and the values of the school community. We develop understanding of Christianity as a world faith and make comparisons with other faiths whilst aiming to encourage a sense of respect for religious traditions, beliefs and practice. It is important to us to support children as they develop skills and attitudes which will support their personal, moral, social and cultural development.
The right of Withdrawal from RE
We aim to be an inclusive community but recognise that parents, of course, have the legal right to withdraw their children from Religious Education. We would ask any parent considering this to contact the Head teacher to discuss any concerns or anxieties about the policy, provision and practice of Religious Education at St George’s School.
