Religious Education

Our Aims

  • Provide pupils with extensive opportunities to explore, question and appreciate their own faith, in order that they can develop spiritually.
  • Develop a knowledge and understanding of a variety of faith and belief systems in order that pupils can live and work in a culture of mutual respect and tolerance within our increasingly diverse community in school, city, and nation.
  • Show our commitment to the promotion of the spiritual and moral development of each student, in conjunction with the pursuit of academic excellence.
  • Create an environment where individuals are valued and their dignity respected. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that each young person’s view is valued. This development of respect for self, environment and others is a high priority in the teaching of religious education at Belfast Royal Academy.
