Religious Education

 

"An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge."

-Proverbs 1815

 At Christ Church CE Junior School we view Religious Education as a major element in the spiritual, moral and cultural development of our pupils. The children acquire knowledge and understanding of major world religions, and have the opportunity to develop their own beliefs and values.

They benefit from not only close links to both the Diocese of Canterbury, our local church, Christ Church; but also from visits to and from other religious leaders from our local area.

We are fortunate enough to have our own ‘Prayer Space’ where children can reflect and worship in creative and interesting ways. Recently we opened our doors to other schools so that they may see our ‘Prayer Space’ and be inspired to create their own.

Religious Education at our school seeks to bring greater meaning to the children’s lives, helping them to ask and answer the ‘ultimate’ questions. For those children that really enjoy thinking deeply about spiritual matters, there is the opportunity to join the ‘Spiritual Council’ and be involved in designing and setting up worship space within the school and its grounds.
