Religious Education (RE)
At St Michael's, our RE curriculum is underpinned by values and purposes, guided by the Sandwell Syllabus and Understanding Christianity. Along with the other subjects of the curriculum, RE aims to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve and to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social, cultural and spiritual development and to prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of the present and the future.
RE is concerned with the deep meaning that individuals and groups make of their experiences and how this helps them give purpose to their lives. It provides opportunities to explore, make and respond to the meanings of those experiences in relation to the beliefs and experiences of others as well as to one's own experiences.
A theologist is someone who studies the nature of God and religious belief.
