Religious Education (RE)

At Claremont we teach the children about the major world religions as well as those which are followed in our local community. We study RE as a part of our challenge curriculum, where we work through big questions. We focus on the features of the religions, their beliefs and practices, as well as the similarities and differences between them. We also look at how people’s beliefs impact the moral decisions they make and circumstance when different religions closely work together. Every year group delivers a class assembly to the school about a key religious festival for example, Diwalli, Hajj, and Harvest. In addition to this each year group visits a place of worship to further understand their practices. At Claremont we believe a deeper understanding of each others beliefs promotes a greater sense of community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society. These principles of our RE teachings are carried throughout the entire curriculum and form the basis of our ethos.
