Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) contributes to pupils’ personal development, well-being and to their sense of community and domestic cohesion by promoting mutual respect and tolerance. RE can also make important contributions to other parts of the school curriculum such as citizenship, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE education). Our Yoga and Mindfulness cards have been developed to meet the changing needs of the curriculum; to support staff to deliver Yoga and Mindfulness to pupils in school. It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development, deepening the understanding of the significance of religion in the lives of others, and themselves.

We have developed a beautiful series of books for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage up to aged 12. Resources  compliment Section 78 (1) of the 2002 Education Act which states that all pupils should follow a balanced and broadly based curriculum, which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, social, mental and physical development of pupils and of society. The Act prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. The Jai Jais series meets the nursery and school’s needs to achieve these aims, within a broad-based curriculum that covers Hinduism and Jainism.
