At Park Brow Primary School we believe that Religious Education is concerned to enable pupils to become aware of religious aspects of life and to give them some knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other major world faiths. The content is concerned with the beliefs and religious practices of people and what these can mean for these people as they live out their lives. It aims to develop skills and some understanding of religious ideas. Religious Education is also concerned with the search for meaning and purpose in life by both believers and by the pupils themselves. We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions.
