RE lessons are intended to offer a broad and rich RE curriculum; to allow for a variety of ways to explore religions, community and personal development and wellbeing. The lessons have the intention of providing a high quality, coherent and progressive experience of the subject, with scope for cross-curricular learning. Through each topic, children will know about and understand a range of religions and world views. They will be able to identify, investigate and respond to a variety of issues. SMSC, personal growth and community cohesion are featured and are there to ensure opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes and values and to reflect on and relate their learning in RE to their own experiences. The intent is to make sure that children understand the relevance of RE in today’s modern world and how it affects our lives.
We believe that using the SACRE curriculum will enable children to have a better understanding of the religions that make up the UK landscape and how they can learn from and work alongside each other to create community cohesion. All children will be more informed about their position in the world, and the decisions they can make impacting their future. All children in school will be able to talk confidently about their wellbeing, moral and cultural development for the society in which they live. The RE curriculum will promote inquisitive minds, respect, tolerance and understanding for all those around them including themselves in line with our school aims.
Our teaching will enable the children to produce high quality work which will evidence a deep understanding of the main religions of the world, their community and their future. This evidence will be seen through using the correct vocabulary, explanations and respectful opinions.
