RE provides opportunities for children to reflect and analyse, to discuss and debate, to explore and discover, and to learn more about the world in which they live.
At Trewirgie we follow the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus, which has been revised in 2020. Through the studying of a range of faiths the children have the opportunity to learn about and explore the cultures, faiths and beliefs of others. Through RE children explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live their lives. Through this they gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief. In turn, this enables them to reflect on their own ideas and ways of living.
Our school’s approach to opened ended discovery supports this approach to learning. Through this subject children will be able to ask and explore questions that, not only helps give themselves a sense of identify but helps them to develop a clear respect and tolerance for the difference and diversity that surrounds us. Through this our children learn how to become a respectful, global citizen.
