At Oxley we want to provide children with knowledge of key religions but also instil respect for others. Through our key school values of Be Kind and Be Brilliant we want our pupils to champion British values of tolerance, respect and individual liberty. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge of Christianity and other world religions. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding.
RE has an important role in preparing pupils for adult life, employment, and life-long learning, fostering respect for others whose faiths and beliefs may differ from their own. As well as offering opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, we will encourage children to develop their sense of identity and belonging as a citizen within their personal communities and more largely in a diverse national and global society. Learning takes place through creativity, drama, debate, visits, handing artefacts, and learning from others.
