Religious education encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging. It enables them to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a pluralistic society and global community.

‘Learning together through faiths’ (The Lewisham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education)

At Coopers Lane we believe that Religious Education should be a stimulating, interesting and enjoyable subject that gives children an opportunity to express themselves in a variety of ways.

In Key Stage 1, pupils explore Christianity and two other principal religions. They learn about different beliefs about God and the world around them. They encounter and respond to a range of stories, artefacts and other religious materials. They learn to recognise that beliefs are expressed in a variety of ways, and begin to understand the importance and value of religion and belief, especially for other children and their families.

In Key Stage 2, pupils learn about Christianity and all five of the other principal religions, recognising the impact of religion and belief locally, nationally and globally.  They consider the beliefs, teachings, practices and ways of life central to religion. They learn about sacred texts and other sources and consider their meanings. They begin to recognise diversity in religion, learning about similarities and differences both within and between religions and beliefs and the importance of dialogue between them.

They recognise the challenges involved in distinguishing between ideas of right and wrong, and valuing what is good and true.

Children are encouraged to communicate their ideas, recognising and respecting other people’s viewpoints.
