Religious Education at Buile Hill is forward thinking, relevant and challenging, we are passionate about provoking meaningful dialogue about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.
Buile Hill is committed to developing the knowledge and understanding of all students, regardless of ability, gender, race or religious persuasion. Students are taught by highly their form tutor in mixed ability groupings and are offered opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. The main aim is to challenge students to reflect on issues of truth, belief, faith and ethics; leading to the ability to analyse, interpret and to communicate their responses.
The focus of religious education is to enable students to develop their sense of identity and belonging. It encourages students to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a pluralistic society and global community. The department facilitates student’s understanding of the important role Religious Education plays preparing them for adult life, employment and lifelong learning. It enables students to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own. It promotes discernment and enables students to combat prejudice.
Students receive 20 minutes of RE inform time each week, the key stage three curriculum is spread over 4 years to ensure that all areas are covered thoroughly.
Students will study the same content this year during RE lessons however, through questioning and discussion the teacher will provide differentiation and challenge.
