At Dunstall Hill Primary School, we believe that Religious Education has a significant role for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
It promotes respect and open-mindedness towards others with different faiths and beliefs and encourages pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging through self-awareness and reflection.
The principle aim of RE is to engage pupils in an enquiry approach where they can develop an understanding and appreciation for the expression of beliefs, cultural practices and influence of principle religions and worldviews in the local, national and wider global community.
To ensure that our RE curriculum is broad and balanced, we follow the Wolverhampton Locally Agreed syllabus. The aim of Religious Education in Wolverhampton is that pupils will know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews.
They will express ideas and insights of their own into the significant human questions which religions address, gaining and deploying the skills needed to study religion.

In Early Years, we encourage the children to share the broad and rich diversity of cultures that are represented in our school. We encourage our children to share their cultural dress, beliefs and rituals which allows them to celebrate the similarities and differences between their cultures.
We also ensure that children have the opportunity to visit local places of worship to further develop their understanding of the world around them and the diverse country that we live in.
