West Twyford Primary School Achieving Together

Religious Education

Religious Education

 

At West Twyford Primary School we have a rich and diverse community with pupils and staff linked to many parts of the world and coming from a wide range of faith groups. We celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all of our pupils and families. We believe that Religious Education provides an important opportunity to affirm and develop awareness of the broad range of beliefs, both within our school and in the wider world.

 

West Twyford Primary School follows the Ealing Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. We learn about the major religious festivals including: Christmas, Diwali, Easter, Eid, Hanukkah and Guru Nanak’s Birthday. As part of our school and community values we emphasize tolerance, respect and understanding as an integral approach towards the teachings of major world faiths and beliefs, including those without faith, in Modern Britain and the world.

 

During their time at West Twyford pupils will have learnt about the major world religions and will have the opportunity to visit a place of worship. Religious Education lessons are also supported by our assembly themes celebrating major religious festivals and important days.
