At Seahaven Academy the Religious Studies Department is committed to providing a curriculum that prepares students for life in a culturally diverse modern world. The department aims to promote an awareness of the usefulness of Religious Studies to everyday living, to encourage enthusiasm for interest in the study of other people’s beliefs and to promote mutual respect, tolerance and understanding across different cultures and communities - those with and without a religious faith.
In line with the East Sussex Locally Agreed Syllabus which states that the aim of religious education is “to give children and young people opportunities to explore the spiritual dimension of human experience and fundamental questions of human life, relating these to the beliefs, values and practices of believers and others and to their own developing beliefs and values” our programme of study ensures that students have opportunities to explore and develop their own beliefs, ideas and opinions. Students learn to express their own beliefs and listen to the views of others; these are important life skills alongside developing an ethical vocabulary.
