HEAD OF SUBJECT - MISS S.KHAN
Religious Education makes a distinctive contribution to pupils' learning by enabling them to reflect upon themselves as whole people, experiencing life through the body, the mind and the spirit. The purpose of Religious Education is to help pupils to understand the significance of religion and its contribution to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Our curriculum follows the Bolton Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. In Year 7 & 8 pupils will develop their knowledge and understanding of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism and Buddhism. In Years 9, 10 & 11 pupils follow a GCSE full course specification. Pupils are always encouraged to reflect and to develop their own beliefs and values and to develop key skills.
The department creates a variety of learning opportunities and experiences for pupils to develop knowledge, understanding and skills: including group work, role play, ICT, guided fantasy, art work, thinking skills and media project work. Pupils are also encouraged to reflect on the diversity of the community in which they live.
The department has excellent links with the local community, with local mosques and churches.
