CREaTE

 

CREaTE - Non examined

(Citizenship, Relationships, Employability and Theology Education).

For more information, please see Mrs Hogan.

All pupils are required to study RE. Religious Education provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life. It explores the beliefs about God, the nature of reality, issues or right and wrong and encourages contemplation of what it means to be human.

It develops knowledge and understanding of faiths in the UK and the wider world. This Core area of the curriculum enhances pupil’s awareness of religious beliefs, teaching, practices and forms of expression. Religious Education encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging.

Citizenship and personal, social, health education topics are taught in this subject. Students will learn about their rights, responsibilities, duties and freedoms and about laws, justice and democracy. They will learn to take part in decision-making and different forms of action.

The aims of CREaTE are:

  • To equip young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life.
  • To encourage them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate.
  • To enhance their spiritual, moral and cultural development
