Religious Education

R.E. at Mead Vale aims to be fun, engaging and provide time to think and reflect. It  encourages children to think about religions, their importance and what they mean to them

Our Mead Vale School family is made up of pupils and staff from diverse backgrounds and cultures. As a school, we aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

We believe that Religious Education provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences and similarities within our school and the wider world. It is a subject that celebrates diversity and challenges stereotypes. 

RE is taught in accordance with the aims of the Awareness, Mystery and Value Agreed Syllabus produced by North Somerset SACRE 

We use an enquiry-based approach, through which we develop children’s’ critical thinking skills, increase their motivation to learn and enhance their knowledge and understanding of, and empathy with people and their beliefs, religious or otherwise. 

This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. RE does not try to persuade, but rather inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.

Please take a look at our Religious Education Learning Outcomes for more information.
