Religious Education (SMSC)

At Brettenham the policy for R.E. is based on the Haringey Agreed Syllabus, which aims to give children knowledge of Christianity and other world faiths.

Children begin:

  • To develop an understanding of the beliefs, practices and insights of religious faiths
  • To appreciate the place of religion in human life, and the important way it affects the actions and attitudes of people.
  • To become aware of the cultural, religious and spiritual heritage of all members of the community.
  • To develop a respect for the rights of others to hold beliefs different to their own.
  • To safeguard the confidence of a child in his or her own faith.
