Studying RE is a meaningful way of creating a successful and wholly integrated society. The more people know about the faiths currently thriving in Britain, the more likely we will be to understand and embrace our multi-cultural society.
Studying religion and belief is a part of a complete education because of the influence of religions and beliefs on individuals, culture, behaviour and on life. By investigating different religions and beliefs, we can offer answers to life’s deepest questions and because young people are often seeking answers to those questions, this can help them they grow in independence and work out how life can be lived.
The purpose of studying RE is therefore to inspire students to develop an eagerness in learning about faiths and cultures that are foreign to them and accept that there are many paths in life and there are vast differences in beliefs, practices, morals and ethics within society.
