Statement of Intent

Religious Education (RE) at Oakwood aims to inspire, challenge and encourage pupils to consider some of life’s most challenging questions.  Positioned within the Beliefs and Values faculty, Religious Education provides pupils with the knowledge and skills to ask deep and often searching questions about their own beliefs and values, religious or otherwise, as well as the beliefs and values of others. The teaching of RE involves studying a range of faiths as well as non-religious world-views and develops the critical thinking and reasoning skills needed to engage with complex moral and philosophical issues.  The RE curriculum will help to develop responsibility and respect for all aspects of diversity, whether it be social, cultural or religious, and prepare pupils well for life in modern Britain.
