RE Curriculum Rationale
As a school we adopt the RBG scheme of work, established by the SACRE. Understanding religion is essential in supporting our pupils to be ready for the next stage of education and understanding the society that we live in.
We aim to foster a knowledge and understanding of the diverse religions which make up our worldwide community and to understand and respect the position of people who do not hold religious beliefs. Humanism is also taught as a thread from EYFS to Year 6.
Religious Education is taught through a variety of approaches including RE lessons, assemblies, stories, visiting places of worship and visits from members of different religious communities. We believe that one of the best ways to learn about people is to share our thoughts, stories, and ideas. We hope to encourage pupils to develop open minds with a caring and tolerant view of the beliefs of others.
Through RE, the British Values of individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are taught and promoted.
Pupils build their knowledge to make links and understand connections between religions.
