1 Unit: What does it mean to belong to a religion? About this unit This unit is intended to allow pupils to explore commitment, belonging and identity within religion. It also gives them the opportunity to reflect on their own personal values and commitments.

Some of the themes on commitment and belonging will be further developed at Key Stage 3 when looking at the other rites of passage.
