FARNBOROUGH GRANGE NURSERY / INFANT COMMUNITY SCHOOL POLICY FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AIMS Religious Education will enable all children to explore religious beliefs and practises, some of which are located in the local community. Pupils will be encouraged to explore the fundamental questions of life raised by human experiences. Pupils will extend their thinking and analytical skills and their creative, imaginative and emotional development. Religious Education will foster mutual understanding between students of differing religious and cultural backgrounds. Pupils will be encouraged to develop a reflective approach to life in an atmosphere of openness, exploration and enquiry. Pupils will be encouraged to respect the differences and help in the promotion of a harmonious society. CONTENT Children will study mainly Christianity and Judaism and some aspects of other faiths. Children will have the opportunities to learn about religion from a variety of resources. Children will have opportunities to explore their own response to profound human experiences and universal symbols. Children will be encouraged to respond freely to experiences and questions which have a profound or puzzling quality and to use a range of different forms of expression to convey their responses. Our average notational time teaching RE is 1 hour 30 minutes per week.

Consideration is paid to different learning styles and the differing abilities of students so that all students make progress in their learning.
