Religious Education and School Assemblies
Religious Education at Westmeads is fun, creative and interactive. We look into all of the main world religions and explore how they worship, what they believe and how they live their lives. We ask questions, dress up, taste food, explore places of worship and reflect on what we believe as well. Learning to discuss our own beliefs is a key part of Religious Education at Westmeads and we value everyone's opinions. Our RE curriculum plays an important part in promoting our children's SMSC development.
Non-denominational Religious Education is provided for all children as part of the curriculum and is taught in accordance with the 2018 Kent Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
The Kent Agreed Principle Aim of Religious Education
The principle aim of Religious Education is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
