R.E Curriculum overview

Religious Education

London Meed believes that Religious Education should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life, we follow the West Sussex Curriculum for RE.  The school bears in mind that the British Isles is a multi-cultural nation which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population.  As a result, Christianity will receive the appropriate weighting withinthe Religious Education curriculum.  Due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths.  Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others will be promoted as part of our programme.  The school has adopted the LEA’s Religious Education Policy.  Parents have the right to withdraw from religious lessons and daily worship in assemblies, but it must be understood that such activities often make a contribution to cross-curricular objectives pursued during the course of the school week.
