Religious Education lead – Mrs Townend
At Etchells, we seek to provide a broad and balanced Religious Education which enables the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils whilst promoting the key British Values of mutual respect and tolerance.
Our wide-ranging and varied curriculum enables children to develop a knowledge and understanding of the religious beliefs and practices of the major religions represented in Great Britain today: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
Pupils are given opportunities to encounter and respond to different religions, beliefs, values and traditions, while exploring their own beliefs. A variety of teaching approaches are used to engage the children. Visits are often made to places of worship, in particular our local Cheadle Mosque. Visitors are welcomed and we enjoy a variety of multi faith assemblies each year which help us to celebrate diversity and understand the practises of different faiths at key dates in the year.
