Religious Education at Lady Katherine Leveson C of E Primary School is at the heart of our strong Christian ethos.
Children enjoy stimulating, engaging and interesting RE learning. Much use is made of candles, music and art work to provide interesting focal points for reflection. Children are encouraged to ask and answer questions.
We follow the Solihull Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and are advised by the Diocese of Birmingham.
Religious education is non-denominational and taught through our topic approach as well as in separate RE lessons and through worship. The aim of religious education is to enable children to develop an understanding of the nature of religion, its beliefs and practices. Children acquiring knowledge of religion, exploring and reflecting on human experience, as well as developing sensitive attitudes will achieve this. Children will be encouraged to develop sensitive attitudes towards others.
Children make an educational visit each academic year linked with their RE studies, and good use is also made of visitors to bring RE alive.
There is a daily act of collective worship for each child, sometimes as a whole school or in a smaller group. This is an important feature of school life, and a positive focus of its ethos and values. As a Cof E school, collective worship is of a broadly Christian nature.
As part of our ethos we value the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education and provide opportunities for pupils to have ‘reflection’. This is often delivered within RE or PSHE.
