Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs
UN CRC Article 14: Children have the right to think and believe what they want, and to practice their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Parents should guide their children on these matters.
We want our children to recognise, respect and welcome everyone’s differences. We want children to be inspired by the differences they encounter, be tolerant of others and learn from the past, recognising and acknowledging that there have been historical injustices that have taken place over time. Celebrating the diversity of cultures, nationalities and world views helps to enhance our knowledge and understanding of the diverse world we live in. A person's Gender, the Relationships we have with other people, Age, Disability, Ethnicity and Sexual orientation all contribute to people’s differences. At West Drayton Academy, we call these differences GRADES. Through our GRADES programme we ensure diversity is reflected in our curriculum.
Discovery RE focuses on critical thinking skills, on personal reflection into the child’s own
