RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

The study of Religious Education at Newton Farm helps the children to:

  • Celebrate the breadth of diversity within our local community
  • Respect and understand their own beliefs as well as those of others
  • Learn to contribute to their family life and to their communities
  •  

Therefore the children at Newton Farm get the opportunities to:

  • Articulate and appreciate their beliefs and cultures
  • Understand how these beliefs and cultures have an impact on individuals, local community and wider society

 

With the guidance of the Harrow Agreed Syllabus, we aim to help the children to learn about and to learn from religious and spiritual insights, beliefs and practices.

 

The aim of the religious Education at Newton Farm is to allow children to:

  • ask challenging questions about meaning and purpose of life
  • develop their knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and other major world faiths as well as Humanism.
  • get the  opportunities for personal reflection, spiritual development and to contribute to a search for meaning and purpose in life
  • enhance their awareness and understanding of religions and beliefs, teachings, practices and forms of expressions, as well as of the influence of religions and the beliefs on individuals, families communities and cultures
  • to learn from different religions, beliefs , values and traditions while reflection on, analysing, interpreting and evaluating the issues of truth, faith and ethics and communicating responses
  • enable them to develop sense of identity and belonging and have the ability to flourish within the pluralistic societies, locally, nationally and internationally
  • learn about the adult life, employment and lifelong learning
  • foster respect for, and sensitivity to, individuals and communities of different faiths and beliefs by promoting discernment and combating prejudice
  • develop further tolerance and harmony between different cultural and religious traditions and belief systems and develop an appreciation of diversity locally and internationally
  • understand that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be a cause for prejudice or discriminatory behaviour
  • explore the significance of the environment, both locally and globally within religions and other belief systems and the role of the human beings and other species within it
  • learn of the changing natures of the society, including the changes in the religious practice and expression, and the influence of religious and other beliefs in the local, national and global community
Our curriculum for this subject is based on the local agreed syllabus for RE.
