At John Hampden School we use a creative, topic-based curriculum where children explore a variety of locations and compare life between them; where they are taught to question their surroundings; where they also learn to understand other people and cultures. We think it is important that children learn about the rich diversity of human and physical geography across the world and learn to recognise the issue of sustainability within society – both at a local and global level.
Religious education is a statutory subject and forms part of the core curriculum for all pupils at John Hampden School. Religious Education (RE) in this country is distinctive in being locally agreed within each Local Authority and closely aligned to the nature of the community itself. RE rightly strives to be relevant to the lives of young people of all faiths and none and draws on the experience of the local faith communities within The Oxfordshire Diocesan Board of Education.
