RE

All students at Clayton Hall study RE up to Key Stage 3 at which point they make their GCSE options. RE GCSE is a full course GCSE comprising of a study of Christian and Buddhist practices and four ethical themes covering world issues. At Key Stage 3 students learn about the six major world faiths and consider the impact of religious beliefs on themselves and others, whether religious or not.

Students receive a stimulating and engaging curriculum throughout, which develops knowledge, concepts, key skills and learning skills.

The principle aim of the RE Department is to help pupils to understand the nature of religious belief and practices and the importance and influence on believers’ lives. Pupils are expected and encouraged to think for themselves and to evaluate the reasons for or against particular interpretations of life.  Pupils are encouraged to challenge their own ideas and concepts and to share those ideas with others.
