What is Religious Education about?
Religious Education is learning about world religions and belief systems, including non-belief, and how religion influences moral decisions regarding controversial ethical issues.
What do we teach in Religious Education and why?
At KS3, Religious Education teaches themes across the breadth of the six major world religions. This enables students to gain a wide perspective of different world views across different themes.
At KS4, we follow the AQA A Full GCSE Specification with a focus on Christianity and Islam. This is because they are the largest two religions in the world currently and the largest two religious affiliations of Kingsmead School students.
