|The RE quality mark, Gold Award, reflects the importance we place on RE as a curriculum subject. Our curriculum’s richness aids in the development of our children’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural compass in our local community and the greater world, resulting in a strong sense of community cohesion. It gives children the opportunity to investigate the fundamental concepts of religion and belief, as well as to consider what is significant in their own lives.
