Religious Education

RE Curriculum Intent


Religious Education at West Ewell inspires pupils to develop an interest in and enthusiasm for exploring the world’s principal religions (Christianity plus Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism) as well as non-religious world views such as Humanism. The children will reflect on challenging questions about “meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human” (taken from the Surrey Agreed Syllabus 2017-2022) and the possible answers there could be to these questions, both from a religious or non-religious view point. RE at West Ewell enables pupils to develop the ability to talk about their own experiences, values, ideas and beliefs whilst respecting and reflecting on others differing views.  This enables them to develop their own sense of identity and become informed, respectful members of both our school community and our wider local community.
