"Every Child Flourishing"


Our curriculum intent for religious education is that every child will: 

  • Provoke challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life
  • Learning about and from religions and world views
  • Thinking and communicating like a theologian
  • Have a good understanding of subject specific vocabulary


Courthouse recognises that Religious Education is an important aspect of its work. Religion and beliefs inform our values and are reflected in what we say and how we behave. RE is an important subject in itself, developing an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the religions and beliefs which form part of contemporary society. RE also contributes to pupils’ personal development and well-being and to community cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society. RE also makes important contributions to other parts of the school curriculum and offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.
