RE

At Herne Bay Junior School, we aim to extend the children's knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews.  We believe that this is essential to foster a respect for all members of our community.   Pupils learn about key customs, rites of passage and celebrations and the vocabulary and symbols associated with these.  They explore and show their understanding of similarities and differences between different religions, considering what it means to be part of a faith community and why this might be valuable.  We encourage children to be curious and to ask questions about religions and beliefs, and to reflect on and express their own ideas in response to their learning.

If you have any further questions about our curriculum please contact the school office.
