Religious Education

"In a world where you can anything, be kind"


  • To create a community of enquiry within our classrooms that challenges pupils to think about the diverse world around them.
  • To help pupils develop transferable skills such as analysis and evaluation.
  • To inspire pupils to think beyond their own experience and consider ultimate questions.
  • To engage pupils in their lessons and foster a love of learning.

Curriculum Intent

  • The principal aim of RE at Deyes High School is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
  • In RE pupils learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions.
  • We strive to equip pupils with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities.
  • RE provides pupils with the opportunity to develop an aptitude for dialogue, so that they can participate positively in society, with its diverse religions and worldviews.
  • Pupils should gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts, sources of wisdom and authority and other evidence.
  • Pupils are given opportunities to reflect upon their own personal responses to the fundamental human questions to which religious and non-religious worldviews respond.
  • Pupils should learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
  • Pupils learn to evaluate wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response, and to agree or disagree respectfully.
