Religious Studies

Our Curriculum Intent

In Religious Studies, our intent is that the RS curriculum will extend and deepen their knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and beliefs, recognising their local, national and global context. Key questions will allow students to understand how belief influences actions and lives of individuals and groups. A focus on philosophy and ethics will also instil in students the confidence to respond to ideas that are open ended and subjective. This subject will enable students to see the value of their own views whilst respecting the perspectives of others, seeing their place within a wider society.
