Differences were meant not to divide but to enrich - J.H.Oldham
At Giles Junior School, we take a thoughtful and creative approach to RE where children’s critical thinking skills are developed, their motivation to learn is increased and their knowledge and understanding of the different religions is enhanced. This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. RE does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.
