RE at Stokenchurch Primary School:
We use enquiry-based learning to develop children's critical thinking skills. We aim to enhance children's knowledge and understanding of others, enhancing their empathy with people and their beliefs, religious or otherwise.
Children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief. RE does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.
Mindfulness means cultivating a sense of awareness on purpose, in a non-judgemental way in the present moment. We use mindfulness practices to build children's self-awareness and skills of reflection, thus supporting their RE learning as well as their personal spiritual development.
