Curriculum Area vision and general information about the CA e.g. successes and strengths

The aim of RE is to engage everyone in studying the BIG QUESTIONS in life, including religious and non-religious answers, so that we can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and evaluate a variety of answers to these questions, and to develop informed answers of our own.
