At our school we believe that Religious Education (RE) makes a significant contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development. It also plays a key role in promoting social cohesion and the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society. We follow the Bury Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and this sets out what children must cover Reception to Year 6. One of the key aims is for children to have a balance of learning about Religions and from Religions.
At Hollins Grundy, we attach great importance to the development of the children’s spiritual and moral values. These, together with the development of their social skills, will enable them to build relationships with other children and with adults and to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. We also seek to develop and promote children’s cultural awareness by providing a rich variety of activities and experiences as part of their wider curriculum.
We are recognised within our community for establishing a secure, caring and industrious environment, in which children can achieve their full potential and develop friendships and a sense of belonging. We work hard to ensure that all our children acquire a high level of self-esteem and knowledge of themselves.
Through our RE curriculum we aim to:
– Promote Positive Attitudes
– Develop Self Awareness
– Build Respect for All
– Foster Open Mindedness
– Promote Appreciation and Wonder
