At West End, we follow the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for RE which focusses on the question ‘What is it to be human?’. In every year group, we teach Christianity, Islam and Hindu Dharma. Each year group also covers one other religion which is either Judaism, Sikhism or Buddhism.

Religious Education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions. It is essential to study religious and non-religious worldviews so that pupils are well prepared for life in our increasingly diverse society. Children are encouraged to reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions

At West End, we believe that having experiences of different religions helps us learn and understand the world around us better. We learn about different festivals that go on throughout the year and we invite religious visitors in to school. Throughout their time at school, the children at West End will get to visit some different places of worship to broaden their experiences.
