Religious Education

RE at Canklow Woods gives vital knowledge and encourages empathy, generosity and compassion.


At Canklow Woods, we believe that it is vital for all of our pupils to learn from and about religion, so that they can better understand the world around them. Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. Religious Education enables pupils to build their sense of identity and belonging, which helps them flourish within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society.  It teaches pupils to develop respect for others, including people with different faiths and beliefs and helps to challenge prejudice.  Religious Education prompts pupils to consider their responsibilities to themselves and to others and to explore how they might contribute to their communities and to the wider society.  By exposing children to other beliefs, faiths and cultures we enable them to discover similarities and differences among peers and create an inclusive environment. Our Religious Education curriculum bestows vital knowledge and encourages empathy, generosity and compassion
