"Teach us to give and not count the cost." - Saint Ignatius
At Athersley North Primary School, pupils are taught knowledge and understanding around a range of different religions and worldwide views, including Christianity and other religions with a significant local presence; so that they can understand, describe, explain, analyse and investigate; allowing them to appreciate the beliefs and practices of those around them.
It is our aim that pupils are able to reflect positively on their own identity, beliefs, values and experiences thus developing them as active, responsible and considerate citizens. Religious language use is ambitious and aspirational.
Pupils will recognise diversity, meanings and values within and between communities and amongst individuals due to their limited exposure to other religions, faiths and beliefs and thus promote tolerance and mutual respect towards others.
The RE curriculum enables pupils to develop positive attitudes by promoting shared values and challenging racism and discrimination.
