Welcome to the Solihull Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education
The purpose of religious education in Solihull schools is to enable each child and young person to gain knowledge and understanding of Christianity, other religions and worldviews, to learn to show respect for and build bridges between different beliefs and practices, people of different faiths and life stances, and to contribute towards their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Religious education plays an important and unique role in each child’s and young person’s education enabling them to understand their spiritual identity, to adhere to moral values and to learn to play their role in promoting community cohesion and inclusion in our increasingly diverse society.
