RESPECT is a combination of Religious Education, Social and Personal Education and Citizenship. The name was selected to reflect, not only the content of the subject, but also the main aim - Teaching respect for myself and other people.
Although each of the curriculum areas within RESPECT has its own distinct aims, objectives and subject content, it is our belief that these areas can and do complement each other and provide a well balanced education for all our pupils.
The subject of Religious Education attracts strong feelings, commitment and sometimes controversy. School life provides a secure environment in which students can develop their knowledge and understanding of the observable and deeper aspects of religion. They are challenged to think about and share their own beliefs and values as well as to appreciate the insights of others whom they will meet and work with.
Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship are acknowledged as being an essential part of the school curriculum. The RESPECT curriculum interprets personal and social development as
- Developing their confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities
- Preparing to play an active role as citizens
- Developing a healthy safer lifestyle
- Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people
Citizenship helps pupils to understand and practise:
- Social and moral responsibility
- Community involvement
- Political literacy
This unit will provide students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of religion by exploring the significance and impact of beliefs, teachings, sources, practices, ways of life and forms of expressing meaning. Also it will allow students to express their personal responses and informed insights on fundamental questions and issues about meaning, purpose, truth,values and commitments.
This course aims to develop knowledge, skills and understanding of religion by exploring the impact of beliefs, teachings, sources, practices, ways of life on the decisions that people make about ethical issues. Also the other aim is to develop personal responses and informed insights on fundamental questions and ethical issues.
