Religious Education

Birkdale is a Christian School and Religious Education forms part of the basic curriculum. The RE curriculum portrays a positive view of religion in general and Christianity in particular. It is taught with sensitivity and respect towards pupils’ own beliefs and any faith commitment of their families.

RE provides an opportunity for pupils to ask life’s big questions, helps them to handle issues they may face in their lives, provides a space for personal reflection or spiritual development and a chance for them to think about their own values, beliefs and identity.

Pupils are engaged using artefacts or objects for example, crosses from El Salvador, lively debate, looking at real, life faith stories, role play such as partaking in a Passover Meal, visits to churches, talking to visitors, being encouraged to ask questions and drawing parallels from the stories with their own lives.
