Humanism for Schools

Coming soon! Understanding Humanism.
A brand new website featuring comprehensive, flexible, and free educational resources for inclusive RE.
understandinghumanism.org.uk. Launching April 2016.

Humanism is a non-religious approach to life, which the 2013 national framework for RE in England recommends be studied in schools as an example of a ‘non-religious worldview’. In Scotland, learning about Humanism helps deliver the experiences and outcomes for RME in the Curriculum for Excellence and can contribute across other curriculum areas as well. Learning about Humanism also helps deliver the outcomes in the National Exemplar Framework for RE in Wales.
