At Sunny Bank we believe that through our RE curriculum pupils are able to engage in systematic enquiry into significant human question which religion and worldviews address, providing the skills to appreciate different responses and become thoughtful, responsible and respectful global citizens. This will enable pupils to develop their ideas, values and build their own identities.
We recognise the importance of the development of the whole child and how a positive wellbeing enables pupils to become lifelong learners which is reflected in the RE curriculum with our focus on; spiritual, moral, social, cultural and intellectual development.
Lessons encourage children to consider challenging questions to deepen their understanding and to allow them to make informed choices and decisions of their own.
A range of artefacts, videos, speakers and outside visits help to local places help bring the learning alive.
We have close links with the local community Church and contact with the Family Trust and Canterbury Cathedral Education Centre. In the future, we hope to establish links with other faith communities.
