Religious Studies

The Religious Education (RE) department at CFGS are committed in ensuring that RE is challenging, inspiring and engaging. We want CFGS students to develop their levels of religious literacy, conceptual understanding and be able to articulate with their ideas about religion, beliefs and spirituality. They should learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the rights of others to differ. Our curriculum will enable our students to become confident learners and ask questions about beliefs and practices and challenge different viewpoints. We want our students to reflect on their own beliefs and be able to explain why they have these.

We promote British values in RE lessons by providing opportunities for our students to study different opinions and beliefs with an open mind, this will promote social cohesion and integration. Within RE lessons, students practise Central Essentials through respecting beliefs and opinions that are different to their own. Studying RE at CFGS enables our students to be thoughtful members of a diverse, modern and plural society. It will raise questions of spirituality, identity and question morality.
