Religious Studies

RS at Sharples intends to allow pupils to develop their understanding and appreciation for cultural and religious beliefs and practices.  Knowledge and understanding of these key elements provides the opportunity to cultivate a deep respect for cultural and religious expression.  RE at Sharples is integral in allowing pupils to understand religious difference, break misconceptions and build tolerance.

RS at Sharples aims to:

  • Develop knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs and practices.
  • Foster an understanding of difference and build tolerance as a result.
  • Develop GCSE skills throughout the RE experience (The Pathway Model).
  • Allow pupils to freely express their views appropriately in a safe and supporting environment.
  • Give pupils the opportunity to use knowledge, understanding and skills to respond effectively in assessment-based activities.
