Religious Education is about people, ideas, values, history, ways of looking at life and other peoples and developing as a person.

At Eagle House Religious Studies helps pupils to:

  1. Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions;

  2. Develop a positive attitude to all people, respecting other people's beliefs and customs;

  3. Develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals and societies and how religion has shaped and inspired human history and culture;

  4. Enhance their moral, spiritual, social and cultural development, helping to develop tolerance, consideration for others and a sense for the importance of fairness and truth in our society;

  5. Develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues;

  6. Develop the skills of interpretation, reflection, empathy, evaluation, analysis and expression;

  7. Develop and strengthen attitudes such as commitment, fairness, respect, self-understanding and enquiry;

  8. Be actively involved in helping those in society that are not as fortunate as themselves.

In this way, Religious Studies complements the Learning for Life programme at Eagle House.
