At Highfields we follow 'explore', the Essex agreed syllabus for religious education. Our aim is that children will learn about religions and learn from religions and that children will:
Develop a positive, caring and responsible attitude towards others.
Mature in respect of their own beliefs, values and attitudes.
Respect the right of others to hold different beliefs from their own and be tolerant of them.
Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principle religions represented in Great Britain.
Explore the spiritual dimension of experience and to reflect upon their inner feelings, questions, thoughts and experiences.
To appreciate the influence of religion on beliefs, values and traditions of individuals, communities and cultures and to begin to make sense of them.
