Ms Ayub is our RE subject leader at St. Thomas. She believes that through learning and understanding different religions and their cultures our children can develop confidence and skills as they continue their journey in life beyond St Thomas’.
Ms Ayub has enjoyed organising school visits to places of worship to enhance our children’s experiences and learning. Recently, the children have enjoyed taking part in the ‘Faith Through Art’ week. She is looking forward to planning even more Inter Faith Themed weeks in the future.
Religious Education at St Thomas’ seeks to develop our children’s religious literacy. Through our RE provision, we aim to encourage our children hold educated, respectful and well informed conversations about religion and world views.
As a voluntary controlled Church of England school we teach our RE through the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education RE Syllabus. The curriculum provides a balance of the disciplines: theology, philosophy, human sciences.
We aim to explore big questions about life, in order to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live. We help children develop and acquire knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principle religions represented in Great Britain.
