Religious Education (RE) provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

RE in Torbay, Devon and Plymouth schools and academies develops children’s knowledge and understanding of religions and worldviews that are represented in Great Britain. The syllabus reflects the fact that religious traditions in Great Britain are, in the main, Christian and it also takes into account other principles religions. Worldviews such as Humanism are also studied as part of the syllabus.

RE offers children opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. It considers the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.
