Our vision for learning (Quoted from Teaching and Learning policy)
The vision for our school is to provide our children with the best possible start in life through the provision of a vibrant, engaging and relevant curriculum where children are challenged and inspired to excel. We strive to develop a community of life-long learners who are ready to succeed in the 21st century.
Religious Education is a vital part of the curriculum as it makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils. It equips pupils with the knowledge and understanding of a range of religions, world views and about different ways of life in local and national context. Pupils will describe, explain and analyse beliefs and practises; appreciating the significance and impact of different ways of life and ways of expressing meaning. They will discover, explore and consider many different answers to questions about human identity, meaning and value. Pupils will discuss beliefs, values and commitments in order to explain reasons why they may be important in their own and other people’s lives. Pupils will articulate clear and coherent accounts of their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to have different views, values and ways of life. An awareness of world religions and cultures supports pupils to appreciate and respect all ways of life in society and promote community cohesion.

Curriculum Enrichment in Religious Education
The children at Wales Primary School attend the local parish church to celebrate festivals throughout the year for example Remembrance Service and Easter. We provide opportunities for pupils to experience and celebrate festivals of various faiths. We sing songs and take part in Christmas concerts and The Nativity for parents and carers. We have ‘Open the Book’ visitors in school to deliver various Christian stories. We organise family picnics and celebrate national events such as The Queen’s Jubilee and King’s Coronation.
