There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Dalai Lama

RE is a challenging academic subject and makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of students, and supports wider community cohesion on Portland.



Our PSHRE curriculum supports our students in being able to identify and form positive and enduring relationships, and know how to live healthy, productive and happy lives. It also creates a safe school community, where students feel comfortable in developing their character and self confidence, and become aware of how they are growing and how to look after their own well being. The RE aspects of the curriculum  develop students’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, and other principal religions, and examine questions about the meaning of life, the self and others, morality, belonging, respect, responsibility and conflict.
