Lady Barn House School

Religious Education

 

“Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams – they all have different names,

but they all contain water.  Just as religions do – they all contain truths”.

MOHAMMED ALI

Lady Barn is a family orientated school that promotes Christian values We base our teaching and learning style in RE on the key principle that good teaching allows children both to learn about religious traditions and to reflect on what the religious ideas and concepts mean to them.

Children are taught to respect each other’s opinions and to value the School’s multi-denominational and multi-cultural dimension. Knowledge, understanding and tolerance towards all faiths and beliefs is fundamental to the LBHS ethos.

Throughout the school, children gain an insight into five of the world’s major religions, namely Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Islam. The pupils are encouraged to share their own religious practices with the rest of their class and much of the teaching is carried out through the lively exchange of information and debate, interspersed with outside speakers and visitors to school.
