Welcome to our school website.

Welcome to the Religious Education curriculum at Ravenswood 2018-19

 

                            

 

We take pride in effectively teaching a broad and balanced coverage of world-views, faiths and beliefs through The Church of England, Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: Emmanuel Project. Religious Education is a statutory subject and is taught for 1 hour per week or equivalent as a block.

 

Ravenswood RE Subject Leaders are Mrs Tovey-Holmes & Mrs Reason

‘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.’ The Religious Education Council of England and Wales.
