Understanding Hindusim, (PRE curriculum at Avanti Schools Trust) is a resource for teachers, parents and schools who wish to explore Hinduism with their students. The curriculum covers all key stages and ages from 3-16. We aim to see children leave school with a coherent understanding of Hinduism (beliefs and practises). We also seek to support teachers through training and resources in developing their own knowledge, confidence and understanding in delivering the curriculum.
The website has four key sections:

- Songs: Songs and prayers are a large part of the culture. We have compiled a list of prayers with child-friendly translations and links to recordings so you can play them directly and sing along!
- Philosophy and Practises: Bhakti-yoga is a way of life, through simple practises one can connect to the divine. Engaging in these practical acts of bhakti-yoga, will awaken a deep sense of fulfilment, happiness and devotion.
- Dramas and Videos: We have brought together videos of dramas and philosophical videos that have been created to share spiritual insight.
