Religious Education & World Views - Mrs Edson 


Religious Education and Worldviews at Oldfield Park Junior School has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion and worldviews, so that they can understand the world around them. Through Religion and Worldviews, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. Our Religious Education curriculum is enhanced further with trips to places of worship. We use the agreed Awareness Mystery and Values for Bath and North East Somerset.


All children at Oldfield Park Junior School will have 1 hour a week Religious Education and Worldviews lessons where pupils will be taught to;
