Religious Education at Pembridge Hall

Religious Education lessons contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the girls at Pembridge Hall. Our practices are mainly based around a Christian syllabus and calendar; however, throughout their time here the girls will have immersed themselves in the beliefs, traditions, culture and customs of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. They will learn from the religions as well as learning about these religions. We aim to develop an understanding that each individual is unique and may have different beliefs which must be respected and nurtured as part of our school community.

Religious Education lessons provide the opportunity for the girls to explore debate, create projects, research, question and learn about their role in the wider community by promoting mutual respect and tolerance.

Throughout the year, we explore different religious festivals and celebrations, visit places of worship, study artefacts and invite people that represent different religions to visit, lead assemblies, hold workshops and offer question and answer time to the pupils.

Cross curricular links with RE, PSHEE and our Fundamental British Values program allows Pembridge girls to recognise and appreciate the diversity, similarities and differences between religious beliefs of citizens in the UK and the wider world. They will consider their own beliefs and those of others in order to communicate their thoughts and ideas while respectfully listening to their peers.
