"Toleration happens to be the best form of religion."  Victor Hugo.

Here at Stanley Park Junior school we have an inclusive approach to the teaching of Religious Education. We aim to encourage empathy, understanding, tolerance, knowledge and curiosity through the teaching of a variety of religions and belief systems, and through developing and exploring a sense of self-awareness and reflection.

 Religious Education has a significant role in the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We encourage children to express their own beliefs, practices and opinions, whether based in religion or not, in a secure environment which nurtures appreciation,enquiry, respect and open-mindedness without fear of prejudice or discrimination. We aim to develop knowledge, skills and understanding based on the influence of principle religions and worldviews in our local, national and global communities.

The aims for religious education focus on the two attainment targets written in the Sutton SACRE Agreed Syllabus for RE.


  • Attainment 1 - Learning about religion and belief.
  • Attainment target 2 - Learning from religion and belief.
