Religious Education (RE)
At Haberdashers’ Slade Green Primary, we believe that Religious Education should engage children through both deep and playful questioning, enrich their thinking with a comprehensive knowledge-base, and enable them to excel as independent thinkers. Religious education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked. At Slade Green Temple Grove, we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major faiths, and address fundamental questions concerning, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of divine spirit. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. RE at Haberdashers’ Slade Green brings together the processes of learning, expressing and deploying skills around the study of religions and worldviews. Children learn about and express their views and appreciate those of others to also promote pupils` spiritual, moral, social, emotional, cultural and intellectual development. Children learn about different religions, the festivals associated with different religions and why the festivals are celebrated. We discuss religious matters and complexities through which they can handle difference and diversity with confidence. At Haberdashers’ Slade Green, we prepare children to thrive in the multicultural community of Slade Green and beyond.
Our RE leader is Miss Crook.
