The aim of RE is to allow pupils to extend and improve their analytical skills whilst allowing them to develop a greater understanding of the world they live in. In RE all pupils undertake an in depth study of 3 major religions with the emphasis on an understanding of the separate beliefs, values and traditions and how they underpin our current society.
