Religious Education (RE)

 

Our vision:

Each child will have a knowledge of world religions, develop their own beliefs and show respect and tolerance for others

 

RE is part of our school creative curriculum and is taught once a week in each class.  The threads of RE are intertwined across the curriculum and links to other subjects are in place to support the children's learning. 

 

RE gives children the opportunity to explore feelings and emotions, develops a sense of awe, wonder and mystery, enables sensitivity to the religious background of all our pupils, ensures that all pupils feel secure in their study of R.E. (whatever the religious or non-religious tradition of their home) and raises awareness and understanding of of religion.

 

Our school uses the LCP Religious Education scheme of work (which supports the LEA's agreed syllabus) and ensures the curriculum is appropriate for each year group and that all five main world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Islam and Hinduism) are introduced and explored throughout the years. Other relevant topics are also included that link to religious studies.  Here are the units of learning for each year.
