Religious Education Subject Lead

“As R.E. lead, my vision is that our children experience the diverse beliefs and cultures of six of the major religions of the world: Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. We aim to give our children the tools to be global citizens who can show understanding, appreciation, love and respect for all.”

  Mrs. K. Whitehouse
