Culture and Society is a faculty made up of Life, Religious Education, Citizenship and Law.
The Life course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the GCSE RE course in Key Stage 4. Religious education is important because it equips students with cultural, social, moral and spiritual knowledge that aids in emotional and physical development within society. The lessons learned in religious education prepare students for responsibilities, experiences and opportunities later in life.
All children need to acquire core knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the religions and worldviews which not only shape their history and culture but which guide their own development. The modern world needs young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values that they can respect the religious and cultural differences of others, and contribute to a cohesive and compassionate society.
