In the Spring Term, we celebrated our RE day across the whole school. We looked closely at 'The Big Story' of Christianity and discussed the 8 concepts in detail. We then spent the afternoon exploring other world faiths and making links between religions. The main focus of the day was to help promote respect, acceptance and understanding between religious beliefs and customs, which is also embedded within our school values. We would also like to thank PAIS, who are our international Christian Youth Group for their support on the day.
