Religious Education

Longwood is a happy place to learn. Our RE lessons play a key role in developing and sustaining our ethos as well as providing the opportunity to explore the differences and similarities between each other. Teaching and learning in RE actively promotes the fundamental British values of individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Our learners develop specific attitudes that are open, reflective and critical through the connective curriculum which allows them to develop as curious, reflective learners. It provides opportunities to play with ideas, emphasise, listen, imagine, make links to a range of questions in a range of themes.

Our learners are given the opportunity to explore the beliefs and lifestyles of a range of communities and individuals around the community and wider world.

All learners are given the daily opportunity to participate in an act of daily worship which promotes values which will support our learners in leading a healthy, happy and harmonious life. These values complement and reinforce all faiths and promote positive relationships and awareness.

Parents and carers have the right to remove their children from Religious Education and Assemblies. This request must be done in writing to the Head teacher who would ask that you carefully consider all aspects of the benefits of this subject prior to making your requests.
