“We should respect all religions and just believe in peace, kindness and harmony.”
– Ananya Panday
Through our RE curriculum, we are given the opportunity to build our sense of identity and belonging, helping us to flourish within our religiously diverse community. We learn about different religions, belief systems, festivals and rituals, and where possible, visit places of worship. We are taught to be empathetic, generous and compassionate, thinking about our responsibilities to ourselves and others.
When you walk into an RE lesson at Coopers Lane, you will see citizens of the world, asking thoughtful questions as we look in depth at different religions. We discuss how we might contribute to our community and the wider world, alongside more challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life. Through our RE lessons, we continue to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs, and learn to challenge any kind of prejudice. We know that our voice is important and that we are ‘all different, all equal, all smiling’.
