At Highfield Primary we pride ourselves on our diverse, multi-cultural
community. Our pupils and families follow different faiths and religions. Our religious and
cultural differences are celebrated and all pupils have an opportunity to share their personal experiences of festivals, traditions and beliefs.
The teaching of R.E. is in line with the new Leeds Agreed Syllabus which was revised in 2015, with emphasis on Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, but also includes Hinduism, Buddhism and non-religious ways of life.
Wherever possible visitors are invited into school to enhance the children’s learning. Trips to places of worship are organised to put their learning into context. Lessons are planned to be creative and practical, whilst
encouraging pupils to investigate the beliefs and practices of religions and other world views, addressing questions of meaning, purpose and value and exploring how they influence morality, identity and diversity.
