Religious education Student Views

Children and young people can offer unique perspectives on what it is like to be a student at their school. At Boldon School, we value the views of our students, involving them in decision-making, helping to shape our curriculum, as well as facilitating a sense of empowerment and inclusion.

We have a whole-school commitment to listening to the views, wishes and experiences of all children and young people. It means placing value on what children and young people tell school staff about their experiences. This is of particular importance across each subject area. We try to promote meaningful opportunities to share their experiences, views and hopes about their school. To build a safe environment, better relationships across the whole school community and empower students with the knowledge that what they say is valued and will be listened to and considered.

We are proud to hear their views about our curriculum, teachers and the learning environment we create:

“ I enjoy thinking about the big questions in life like Does God exist?”


Year 7

“I like learning about how different cultures celebrate”


Year 8

“I enjoy debating contemporary moral issues in class, like abortion and terrorism”


Year 9

“Religious Educational allows you to understand the lives of people from different faiths. It helps you to understand other cultures and religions and it gives you a deeper understanding of what others may have suffered because of their religion”


Year 10

“RE lessons at Boldon School have opened my eyes to the world around me. I have specifically enjoyed learning about different religions and expressing my opinions. When we learned about Abortion and Euthanasia, it made us realise how important it is to discuss these issues”
