TEACHING OF MAJOR WORLD FAITHS
Our school does not exist within a bubble and belongs to a local, national and world-wide community. It is also a rich and diverse community serving families from many countries, speaking many languages and worshiping in a range of traditions. We are committed therefore to supporting pupils’ learning about and celebration of the diversity of major world faith traditions as part of their preparation to be informed and responsible citizens of the UK. Each unit of God Matters includes a multi-faith element. The major theistic religions are covered as part of this work.
