KS3 Religious Education

Religious Education encourages a reflective approach to living, a knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs and practices, and a development of personal skills in forming reasoned opinions, based on discussion and reflection.

Religious Education seeks to develop an awareness of the variety of human responses to life's key experiences which is distinct from the role of the "faith communities" in nurturing pupils in a religion. The role of the school is to teach students to reflect on religion in its many forms in the world.

Hartlepool Local Authority have launched a new Agreed Syllabus, which includes many opportunities for addressing issues which our students may come across in their lives.
