At Goodmayes Primary School we believe that RE is essential in developing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world. In our school, we embrace diversity and celebrate our differences. We value and appreciate the rich cultural and religious heritage of all members of our school community. It is our intent to provide our pupils with a RE curriculum that is engaging, challenging and inspiring. Therefore we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, and encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. We provide our pupils with opportunities to learn about and from religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts.
