All students work and progress through a Philosophy & Ethics course in line with the Walsall Local Agreed Syllabus for RE 2010. This includes the new non-statutory national framework for RE, published by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. The department is based in room 67, 141 and 142 and offers all students the opportunity to extend their knowledge, understanding and skills in learning about, and from, the many religions represented in Great Britain. The Key Stage 3 course follows on from what has been taught in the primary school. We focus on a thematic study of religion and cover a range of issues. Philosophy & Ethics is used as a tool to help your child understand why people act in the way that they do and believe what they do. Philosophy & Ethics promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of students by giving them the space to think about their role in an ever-increasing multi-cultural society.
