Religious Education

Inspiring our children to embrace and respect the diverse and rich communities around them

The aim of RE teaching at Great Orton is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding of the different members of our community and the wider community. We aim to provoke challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs, the self, and issues of right and wrong, commitment and belonging of many different religions. We aim to teach pupils to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs, helping to challenge prejudices. This in turn will help prompt pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others, and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to wider society. We hope that our approach encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.
