Religious Education aims to develop learners to enquire into, investigate and understand religions and beliefs. Religious Education can be seen as a journey during which pupils should have the opportunity to explore questions of human existence and behaviour and questions of meaning and value.
The building blocks for this subject are set out in Statutory Framework for EYFS: Understanding the world which involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to observe and find out about people and places.
This subject provides opportunities, with reference to the specific beliefs and religions studied, for children to think about and interpret:
sources of information including holy texts
practices of different religions including rites of passage and festivals,
ways of life and ways of expressing meaning
