Our inclusive curriculum promotes equality and celebrates diversity, respecting the rights and dignity of every child enabling all children to reach their potential.
The nature of Religious Education
Religious education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. At St Paul’s School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths and world views, and we address the fundamental questions in life, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of a God. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge not only of Christianity but also of other world religions and world views. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children learn from religions and world views as well as about religions and world views.
