'I feel RE provides children with the opportunity to reflect on their own thoughts and beliefs, learn about the thoughts and beliefs of others, consider big questions, learn that not all questions can be answered and that it is OK to wonder. RE also gives children permission to be sad as well as happy and excited, helps them to see that there are times when there is no one right answer.'
