Religious Education plays an important part in the curriculum at the City of Peterborough Academy. The subject is concerned with people, the world and our environment, belief systems (religious and non-religious), relationships, communication, diversity, cultures, morality, why we are here in the first place. It is about life and Religious Education plays a fundamental role in providing our pupils with the knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our aim, through studying and participating in this subject area is to equip our pupils to become rounded and responsible individuals and citizens who can benefit and contribute in a fully positive way to our communities and the wider world in the twenty-first century.
Activities throughout the academic year include focus days relating to anti-discrimination and modern British values, an introduction to the Abrahamic religions and Buddhism, workshops on the teachings of Islam and combatting Islamophobia.
These teachings are underpinned by the comprehensive assembly and tutor programme which are delivered across the academic year to all year groups.
