Religious Education at Bank View
In RE lessons at Bank View, students learn about Christianity as well as the other 5 main world religions of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism. It is not collective worship, rather education about religion. RE lessons cover elements of psychology, sociology and anthropology because it is ultimately a study of people and how they act in their communities. In addition to religious views, non-religious beliefs are shared and respected. Students are encouraged to bring their own experiences into the classroom. In lessons students are challenged to develop their critical thinking skills and show empathy for others and their lives.
