School effectiveness

Religious education

We recognise that the very best RE enables students to explore our shared human values, to reflect on what it means to live ‘a good life’, and to develop knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of everyone within their community. Sowing the seeds of the future embodies the principles of inclusion and fairness, and will ensure that all young people in Ealing are able to share and develop their own thoughts about what it means to live an examined life, giving them the tools they need to move confidently as adults into an increasingly diverse and secular society. ~Sara Passmore, former head of education and promotion, British Humanist Association
