Schools must teach religious education, but it's not part of the national curriculum.

Religious education aims to help children and young people become:

  • successful learners who enjoy learning
  • confident people - able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens that make positive contributions to society

Pupils work towards two attainment targets:

  1. Learning about religion and belief
  2. Learning from religion and belief
