Religious Education

At Lawley Village Academy, we are committed to provide opportunities for all children to reach high and aim for the stars, regardless of differences.

Our school Religious Education curriculum aims to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.  We aim to promote good self-esteem and emotional well-being, and to help them form meaningful relationships based on respect for themselves and others. Through high-quality teaching and exposure to religious texts and artefacts, we aim to empower children to appreciate the rich diversity of the people in our world. 

Through our teaching of RE and our whole school, key-stage and in-class assemblies, we support children to develop tolerance and respect for different cultures and beliefs within our society. We have two weekly themed Key Stage assemblies (currently Mondays and Thursdays), each focusing on a British value. We also deliver weekly 'Picture News' assemblies (specific to Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2) focused on a current news story; where an image is provided and combined with a thought-provoking question, giving our children an understanding of current affairs, the associated British value and an understanding of differing views and beliefs, whilst also making them aware of the diverse experiences of others (and the challenges that may be faced by people around the world). 

We believe that talk is key and aim to provide children with a safe space to share their ideas, question the world around them and develop the skills needed to be well-rounded, empathetic, kind and caring members of our society.
