RE

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington our families, staff and pupils are linked with many parts of the world and faith groups.  We aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils. We believe that Religious Education (RE) provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences at the academy and in the wider world.  We are very grateful to our families who support their children’s learning of other faiths, as this is the way we can bring tolerance, respect and understanding to our future world.

Pupils learn about all aspects of religious education, which involves learning about different religions, beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own.  As we live in England, we have a broadly Christian curriculum but do look at other faiths and religions alongside this, for example Islam and being a Muslim, Sikhism and Hinduism.

We follow a scheme called Love to Celebrate which incorporates the main religions and provides children with an insight into a range of festivals. An overview is below.

RE overview 

Religious education lessons are also supported by our weekly collective worship themes to celebrate a wide variety of religious festivals and celebrations. We have an annual assembly/collective worship schedule.

The Spinnaker Trust come to HPAO to do an assembly regularly. http://www.spinnaker.org.uk/about-spinnaker/about-spinnaker/who-we-are
