Learning at St George's

Religious Education

We believe that R.E provides the opportunity to reflect that religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking into account the teaching and practices of other principle religions represented in Great Britain. It is a subject that celebrates diversity and challenges stereotypes.
