Religious Education and Worldviews


‘An education in religion and worldviews offers a great opportunity to grapple with some of the most important issues people throughout the world have faced since time began.’

John De Bono (NATRE)

Our Vision

At Warter CE School our world view shapes the way we experience life and interact and relate to others.  Consequently, Religious Education is important to working and living in a multi-faith and multi-cultural world but it is also a vital way to understand ourselves.  By experiencing Religious Education, your child will enter into a rich discourse about the religious and non-religious traditions that have shaped Great Britain and the world. 

By focusing on world views – both secular and religious – and by recognising that even within a religion such as Christianity, there are differences between individuals who define themselves as Christian, we therefore hope to show children the complexity and variety of world views and how they relate to each other. 

The Right to Withdraw:

If you wish to withdraw your child from Religious Education then you have the right to do so, however we would ask that you contact the school so that we can discuss this decision with you carefully and satisfy ourselves together that this is the correct decision for your child.  





The key to an effective Religious Education curriculum is not only learning new ideas and world views but seeing how these compare, contrast, and coexist.


Consequently, while children will continue to learn about different faiths through their time at Warter, they do so with a thematic approach. 


Becoming philosophical thinkers means that our children are able to take a considered and informed view of key issues.






When pupils study RE, they do so ‘from a position’. This position is their ‘viewpoint’ or perspective on the world, which is influenced by, for example, their values, prior experiences and own sense of identity. Through the curriculum, pupils will  build ‘personal knowledge’, which includes an awareness of the assumptions that they bring to discussions concerning religious and non-religious traditions.





As part of our school’s commitment to the teaching of fundamental British values, through RE pupils learn further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling them to acquire an appreciation of (and respect for) their own and other cultures.  The structure of the RE curriculum supports this by bringing the views of different faiths together when considering key issues affecting society.
