Religious Education at Park Road School

Religious Education is a compulsory subject and forms part of the national curriculum. At Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School, we aim to develop children’s knowledge and understanding of the major religions of the world. We help our children to learn from religions as well as about religions. Furthermore, children will reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We aim to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of all pupils. RE enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. We organise visits to local places of worship and invite representatives of local religious groups to come into school and talk to the children e.g. a local priest before Christmas and Easter. Local Imam during Ramadan. Pupils develop their sense of identity and belonging, preparing them for life as citizens in a multicultural society.

All materials are handled very sensitively and with respect - resources in school include books, pictures, artefacts, posters. All children irrespective of background, race, gender and capability have equal access to the RE curriculum.

The school follows the Local Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Kirklees and Calderdale.
