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:
Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions;
Develop a positive attitude to all people, respecting other people's beliefs and customs;
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;
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;
Develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues;
Develop the skills of interpretation, reflection, empathy, evaluation, analysis and expression;
Develop and strengthen attitudes such as commitment, fairness, respect, self-understanding and enquiry;
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.
