‘St Philip’s embraces excellent academic rigour by working with all pupils to achieve their God-given potential within a bold, exciting curriculum. This is especially apparent in religious education (RE) where pupils develop a remarkable level of spiritual understanding of major world faiths. Pupils are stimulated by high quality RE because teachers have designed a relevant, interesting curriculum which challenges their thinking. Pupils frequently say that teachers also make these lessons fun!’ SIAMS Report 2019
We believe that the aim of religious education is to contribute to the development of the mind, body and spirit, to celebrate children as individuals, to develop their beliefs, values and attitudes through the exploration of the significance and place of Christianity and other religions, with an emphasis on the beliefs and practices of Christianity.
We endeavor to do this by giving pupils opportunities to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, emotionally and physically, towards their full and unique potential, under the guidance of God. We use the Liverpool Diocesan Agreed Syllabus as a resource for teaching religious education which is based upon the traditions, practices and teachings of Christianity and other World Religions.
