Beliefs and Ethics

At Maplewell Hall School, Beliefs and Ethics is the study of religious beliefs, practices and teachings in addition to moral principles that are shaped by social norms, cultural practices, and religious influences. We believe that Beliefs and Ethics is for everyone. We want to give our students the right knowledge and skills to enable them to reach their future destination – whatever or wherever that may be.

We recognise that within each classroom there will be pupils working at different levels of challenge. We aim to provide suitable learning opportunities by matching the challenge of the task to the ability of the child. In addition to this, teaching and support staff are deployed effectively to maximise each pupil’s potential and to allow them to achieve ‘success’.

‘In Beliefs and Ethics lessons we strive for progression both academically and holistically. We aim to engage and enthuse students in their learning and inspire and foster a deep seated sense of self belief; which will aid them in becoming lifelong learners. We consider every pupil carefully and individually to ensure they are placed on the most appropriate pathway throughout their time at Maplewell. Over the course of their education, some pupils may move between pathways. All pathways centre on the National Curriculum and provide a broad and balanced education whilst supporting the lower ability and allowing stretch and challenge for the higher ability students to enable everyone to achieve their full potential whilst building upon their level of self esteem.
