Religious Education

Our Religious Education curriculum follows a locally agreed syllabus called ‘Living Difference’. At
Harefield, we aim to promote the spiritual wellbeing of every child. We provide our pupils with
the essential skills and knowledge they need to become respectful and tolerant of those with
different faiths and beliefs. We do this by following a concept-based curriculum where our
pupils will have the opportunity to respond to a variety of concepts that are common to all
people, shared by many religions and often distinctive to particular religions. We follow a cycle
of enquiry by which we recognize and value the pupil’s own experiences and views, allowing them
to enquire, contextualize and evaluate concepts. As a school, we will also take into account when
teaching the religious backgrounds represented by our children. We also promote the
fundamental British values of democracy.
