Diamond Wood Community Academy is made up of staff and pupils who originate from many nationalities, cultures and faith or non-faith groups. As a school we aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils including new arrivals and non-native English speakers. We believe that a Religious Education provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences within our school, the community and the wider world. It is a subject that celebrate diversity and challenges stereotypes.
Religious Education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. At our School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths including those of no religion and we address fundamental questions concerning the meaning of life and the meaning of faith.
Festivals and Celebrations
Every year in school we celebrate festivals and celebrations as a school. We spend the whole day learning about why and how people celebrate. The children take part in fun and exciting activities based around the festival/celebration.
