Religious Education


At St Mary and St Thomas, we believe that through teaching Religious education it encourages pupils to learn about and from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning.  It challenges pupils to reflect on, consider, analyse, interpret and evaluate issues of truth, belief, faith and ethics and to communicate their responses.

Religious education encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging.  It enables them to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a pluralistic society and global community.  Religious Education has an important role in preparing pupils for adult life, employment and lifelong learning.  It enables pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own.  It promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice.
