 At St Gregory’s we aim that Religious Education will:

  • Provoke challenging and ‘deep’ questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs, the self, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human. It develops pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, other principal religions and religious traditions that examine these questions, fostering personal reflection and spiritual development.
  • Encourage pupils to explore their own beliefs (whether religious or non- religious), in the light of what they learn as they examine issues of religious belief and faith and how these impact on personal, institutional and social ethics; and to express their responses.
  • Enable pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.
  • Teach pupils to develop respect for each other, including people with different faiths and beliefs, and helps to challenge prejudice.
  • Prompt pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others, and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to wider society. It encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.
  • Develop a sense of awe and wonder and mystery.

Collective Worship

We are a voluntary aided school and we understand worship to be a special act or occasion whose purpose is to show reverence to God. Collective worship involves members of the school coming together and participating in an assembly. We expect everyone to take an active part in collective worship.

While the majority of acts of worship in our school are Christian, we also hold assemblies that reflect other religious traditions that are represented in the school and wider community.
