The Mount Stewart Schools

Religious Education

We aim to provide our pupils with a broad, balanced, spiritual, moral, cultural and knowledge-based Religious Education curriculum in which every child will be able to achieve an insight into the nature of Religion and what it means to be religious. Where possible, we link our Religious Education to our 20 core concepts running through our curriculum. 

 

We endeavour to create an atmosphere in which every child feels secure in their own beliefs and has respect for the beliefs of others, whilst acknowledging the broadly Christian tradition of the country. We feel that all children have the right to discuss the elements of their own faith, the faith of others and the ideas of those who have no religious beliefs in a free atmosphere that promotes openness, fairness and mutual respect.

 

The children, staff and parents of The Mount Stewart Schools come from diverse cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds and we value this in a positive way. We also believe that cultural and linguistic diversity help enrich our lives.

 

We actively promote equality of opportunity, racial equality and good relations among all the different groups in the school. We believe that knowledge of other peoples’ backgrounds as well as their own will serve to promote mutual cultural respect and a high self esteem for everyone in the school.

 

We believe that each child should be encouraged to be aware of the role played by religion in the community and the wider world. We believe that Religious Education and the development of the whole person are an integral part of a child’s education.

 

RE in school aim to support children to:

  • Become aware of themselves as individuals and groups within the school and wider community.
  • Develop their spiritual awareness and respect for the opinions of others.
  • Deepen their awareness of the world around them.
  • To create empathy with others from an understanding of their beliefs/customs/cultures.
  • Develop skills and attitude that will support their personal, moral, social and cultural development.
