‘We have more in common, than that which divides us,’ Jo Cox
At Abingdon Primary School, we are proud that all the major world religions are represented across our school community and within our curriculum. We recognise the fundemental role that Religious Education plays in supporting our children not only to understand their place in our school community, but also their place in society as a whole as well as considering how religion has shaped our history.
‘People of different religions and cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us with very different groups. We can love what we are, without hating what – and who – we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings.’ Kofi Annan
We follow the Middlesbrough Agreed Syllabus, which principally aims: ‘to engage pupils in enquiring into and exploring questions arising from the study of religion and belief’.
