At Banks Road the teaching of R.E. encourages pupils to develop positive attitudes to their learning and to the beliefs and values of others.
We want our pupils to be ready to learn in R.E lessons by developing the following key attitudes:

- respect for all
- open mindedness
- appreciation and wonder
Across all Key Stages pupils learn about the role of religion in the modern world and the important beliefs and values that shape it.

Pupils will take part in activities which involve :
