At Sinai, we believe that learning about other cultures and faiths and broadening our children’s views is essential as we are living in a multi-cultural society, and this helps them enter into society and be accepting of difference. We promote mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs so that we can immerse our children in the world around them.
We want all of our pupils to come out of Sinai with a firm understanding about other religions and worldviews, having explored their key values.
In order to do this, our teaching will give an overview about the whole religion rather than specific practises. Through their Jewish Studies and the ethos of the school our pupils are secure in their Jewish knowledge and beliefs and RW lessons will provide an opportunity for them to look at the similarities and differences between other religions and worldviews and Judaism, as well as time to reflect and celebrate their Judaism.
The purpose of teaching Religions and Worldviews at Sinai is to strengthen children’s multicultural awareness and to prepare our pupils positively for life in modern Britain. We are proud to teach the major world religions at Sinai, including Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and Hinduism, as well as Humanism.
