At Walton-le-Dale we nurture a culture in which everyone is valued. Our Religious Education explores ultimate questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can make sense of religion, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
Our children are taught about a range of religions and learn to respect and ask questions about different religions, traditions and cultures around the world.
By learning about and from religion we can become more open minded, respectful and achieve greater self-awareness.
Our RE curriculum contributes to pupils’ personal development and well-being and children's place in our community by promoting mutual respect and tolerance in a diverse society.
It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, deepening the understanding of the significance of religion in the lives of others –individually, communally and cross-culturally.

Our religious concepts are regularly revisited and built upon through year groups and across key stages to allow our children to continue to develop and strengthen their understanding.
From Year 2, children begin and end each study with a learning journal entry. These graphic organisers show the teacher and child what they have learnt and offer an insight into the child's understanding of the interconnected elements they have encountered within the study. They also show the progress each child has made.
