Religious Education

Religious Education (RE) at Haughton Academy enables pupils to learn about the world in which we live.

RE is not a subject designed to make people religious, but rather to allow students to think for themselves about religious, moral, social, philosophical and ethical issues.

RE develops pupils’ understanding of the beliefs, teachings, practises and forms of expression of Christianity and of other world religions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. RE also provides students with opportunities for their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. RE at Haughton Academy promotes respect and tolerance for different people’s faiths/non faiths, feelings and values.

Our intention is to empower students and promote equal opportunities, self esteem and emotional wellbeing.
