“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate they can be taught to love for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite.” – Nelson Mandela
“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness…the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives” – Dalai Lama
The Religious Education curriculum at Rushey Mead aims to give our students an in depth understanding of the complex religious and non-religious traditions that have shaped Great Britain and the world. This will involve students learning through 3 disciplines / lenses: theological, philosophical and human/social science.
This will help our students understand the impact different cultures and religions have on individuals and communities, as well as promoting British values and community cohesion by teaching students how to live in a tolerant, multi faith society whilst helping them make sense of their own place in the world. We want to provide our students with a relevant enriching curriculum which they can critically engage with and develop their high order thinking skills. Studying different religions and worldviews allows our students to reflect on their own identity, and consider the different responses to some of life’s most difficult questions. Our intention is to provide students with opportunities to explore diversity of thought, develop their own informed opinions and evaluate different points of view enabling them to make a positive difference in society.
