At Hawkhurst Church of England Primary School we strive to extend horizons by providing all pupils with the opportunity to extend and explore the spiritual, moral, intellectual, creative and personal possibilities within God’s World.
Religious Education enables pupils to acquire knowledge and understanding about Christianity as a living faith that influences the lives of people in the UK and worldwide. It also aims to educate them about other major world religions represented in Britain. They are also encouraged to develop their own beliefs and values.
R.E plays an important part in our broad and balanced curriculum to which all pupils are entitled at Hawkhurst. Through using a variety of teaching techniques such as: drama, art, discussion, reading texts, pictures, use of artefacts and time for reflection, the pupils will experience opportunities to learn about religions and become religiously literate.
Christianity plays a central role in the school and Hawkhurst follows the Kent Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and the Understanding Christianity Syllabus, which focuses on the ‘big story’ of the Bible.
