Religious Education

Religious Education at Blundell’s Prep contributes to the children’s education by provoking challenging questions about meaning and purpose in life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

In our weekly RE lessons, the children will gain and use the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate different sources of information about the world’s main religions. They learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.

At Blundell’s Prep, the children consider the beliefs, teachings, practices and ways of life central to the world’s main religions. They learn about sacred texts and other sources and consider their meanings. They begin to recognise diversity in religion, learning about similarities and differences both within and between religions. The children also learn about non-religious world views with a focus on Humanism.

In the course of their studies at Blundell’s Prep the children are encouraged to consider and develop their own beliefs and values.
