Not everything that matters can be measured.
Not everything that counts can be counted.
Not everything that is valuable has a price.
RE concentrates on the things that really count, matter and are truly valuable.
RE enables pupils to have a greater understanding of themselves, the world and the people
RE teaching in Mawgan-in-Pydar is based on the New Cornwall Agreed Syllabus. We develop children’s knowledge and understanding of some of the major world faiths by exploring the beliefs, values and traditions of Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. In accordance with requirements, 60% of RE time each year is spent studying Christianity and the remaining 40% learning about the other religions. R.E. is delivered through integration into class project work and discrete R.E lessons as well as through assemblies. Through the use of IT, educational visits, artefacts and workshops with members of different faiths, we enhance our children’s understanding of our multicultural society and encourage respect and sensitivity towards other people and their beliefs.
