Curriculum intent

Our Curriculum aims to enable young people to hold balanced and informed conversations about religions and beliefs. Our curriculum aims to motivate and involve students in world issues both globally and locally and to know and evaluate the responses of different world views and religions to these issues. We want to enrich our students understanding of the world and of belief through a diverse and broad range of topics and through the study of the views and main beliefs of all major world religions and atheist or humanist perspectives. Our curriculum encourages our students to understand how their lives are connected to others and are shaped by the historical and contemporary influence of different religious and world views.

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
