As part of a broad and balanced curriculum, all children are taught Religious Education (RE) at Scapegoat Hill Junior and Infant School. We follow the agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Kirklees. Religious Education offers a place of integrity and security within which difficult questions can be tackled in a safe but challenging context. It promotes spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and allows the children to understand the concept of diversity. Our teaching enables pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding of both religious beliefs and non-religious world views. From this, the children can develop their own beliefs and values. We will not steer the children towards a particular belief. To strengthen our children’s knowledge and skills and to give them a chance to flourish as members of a diverse global society, assemblies will be delivered about festivals and visits will be planned to places of worship.
