The content is built around three inter-connected strands: Expressing beliefs, Exploring questions, and Living our Values. Underpinned by a set of cross-cutting elements: Enquiry, Exploration, and Reflection and Action. These three elements describe both a set of skills and an approach to learning. They are embedded in the content of 30 topics.
