Newark Hill Academy

Religious Education

Through the Religious Education curriculum, pupils have the opportunity to study many cultures and religions, to further their understanding of the multi-cultural society in which we live. Children are taught the key aspects of Christianity and the other principal religions represented in the United Kingdom: Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism. They will have a secure knowledge of: the people, stories and traditions that influence beliefs and values practices and ways of life, forms of expressing meaning, identity, diversity and belonging, meaning purpose and truth, values and commitment. They will achieve this through asking and exploring a range of answers to questions about life, individuals and society. We aim to develop positive attitudes of respect towards other people who hold views and beliefs different from their own; living in a society of diverse religions.
 
Our Academy follows the Peterborough Religious Education Agreed Syllabus, approved by the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) which is the legal basis for religious education in Peterborough.
