Curriculum Intent for Religious Education
The RE department at VHS is dedicated to develop pupils at an educational level and beyond for maximum opportunities in the wider world.
Our vision for pupils is to gain the relevant academic skills and knowledge so that they can pursue qualifications at a degree level. Furthermore, the RE department at Valentines aims to develop and nurture interpersonal skills so that pupils can thrive and contribute to life in their local and wider environment.
RE lessons, provide a safe space and a creative environment for pupils to share and engage in ideas through critical discussions. In addition, we encourage pupils to challenge misconceptions and tackle pertinent issues such as stereotypical viewpoints, as well as addressing the issue of religious and cultural intolerance.
