Manor’s RE curriculum encourages children to have confidence in their own growing sense of identity as well as learning about, valuing and respecting a diverse range of others’ faiths, beliefs and cultures. Our curriculum is a safe space to express and explore views and opinions, encouraging empathy, generosity and compassion. It provides opportunities to compare and contrast religions and beliefs, neither promoting or undermining religious, spiritual or secular stances. Children learn about and from different religions and worldviews in order to allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
At Manor, we teach Religious Education through the Newham SACRE agreed syllabus. Our Religious Education curriculum explores all of the major world religions, including many festivals and celebrations. We aim to use an open and objective approach to help children to understand and appreciate the diverse and multi-cultural society we live in. We encourage discussion and debate that children can benefit from regardless of their personal faith and we promote respect and tolerance of the beliefs of others. The school also celebrates a range of festivals celebrated by different cultures and religions throughout the year.
