Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development at Lanesfield Primary School. We encourage pupils to develop their own sense of identity and belonging in their lives beyond school.
We follow the City of Wolverhampton Sacre Syllabus and Discovery materials which promote respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs. The children develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity, and of the other principal religions and beliefs represented in Wolverhampton and indeed throughout Great Britain, including Sikhism Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism.
We use IT to explore different religions and places of worship that cannot be accessed locally. Through acquiring new insights about different beliefs the children learn to be accepting and respectful of the beliefs of others, being mindful that this may include children who are not part of a faith group.
Charity is a fundamental part of all religions and at Lanesfield Primary School we support several charities as we feels it is important to encourage the children to think about more than just themselves, and to develop a positive, community-centred approach to fundraising that is at the heart of any fundraising campaign.
