Religious education seeks to make a major contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils by helping them to acquire a knowledge and understanding of major world religions, an appreciation of ultimate questions and responses to them and to develop their own beliefs and values. It must be taught to every pupil registered at the school but parents and teachers have rights of withdrawal as stated below. RE is taught in accordance with the latest Kent Agreed RE Syllabus.
At Great Chart Primary School we strive to provide a ‘value based’ curriculum, alongside our knowledge/skills based curriculum.These are not ‘bolt-on’ extras but a strong ethos of school life. We believe that the development of these values can rarely be ‘measured’.
