At Senacre Wood Primary School, we believe that the children should be encouraged to develop their understanding of the importance of creating an inclusive community that works in harmony. We work with the children to develop a sense of community and belonging that engages both attitudes and understanding:


To create this community at Senacre Wood Primary School, the children need to:

  • Develop a willingness to ask questions and explore their curiosity.
  • Respect and value the views and opinions of other children’s faith’s and non-faiths.
  • Respect the right of others to hold their own religious views or non-religious views without ridicule or embarrassment.
  • Recognise that everyone is unique and has something to offer to R.E.
  • Appreciate the impact that beliefs, values and traditions have on lifestyle.
  • Have time to reflect and appreciate all of the above.

RE makes a key contribution supporting schools to promote ‘British Values’ and to prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.
