The R.E. curriculum at The Belham provides children with the opportunity to learn about and understand a variety of religions and worldviews. It enables them to express ideas and insights regarding the nature, significance, and impact of these belief systems, as well as equiping them with the necessary skills to engage in discussion and debate. This curriculum provokes thought-provoking questions about the meaning and purpose of life, issues of right and wrong, and what various religions say about the essence of being human. Through an expanding knowledge of different religions, children will develop respect for others, including those with diverse faiths and beliefs, and learn how to challenge prejudice. Teachers will establish a secure environment, encouraging and exemplifying empathy and compassion.
