“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
It is our belief that Religious Education should enable Wellfield students to critique and ask questions about the world around them. By reflecting on their own experiences and learning about the experiences and belief systems of others, students become critical thinkers. We seek for pupils to form their own justified opinions on matters of religion, the world and citizenship.
At Wellfield, we engage first-hand with all seven of the world’s major religions, inviting both visitors into school and attending trips off site. These experiences promote the understanding of faith, as well as non-faith, communities that co-exist in the local area and the wider world. By creating active and engaged citizens, we hope Wellfield students can “shake the world”.
