Welcome to Our Website!




The intent of our Religious Education curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child enabling them to develop their knowledge and understanding of religions and world views so that they will become responsible members of society. This will help them to understand and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up in today’s diverse, multicultural society. They find out about simple examples of religion that are drawn from local, national and global contexts and are encouraged to ask questions, express their own views and to question their own and the thinking of others. RE should be taught as a discrete stand-alone weekly lesson of 50 minutes per week or as a block of lessons of the same cumulative time. In addition, links to PSHE and British Values are made but is not taught as a joint lesson. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.



Clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum and NASACRE:

The school curriculum will focus on two main learning areas: Knowledge and Understanding of

world religions and world views and Learning from Religion by responding, evaluating and


The Scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British Values, PSHE and

schools Key skills into the curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers: Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand RE and to

respond to other local/world issues.

Working Walls/Values: Working Walls and values displayed in each classroom exemplify the

terminology used throughout

the teaching of RE, BV and SMSC which enables pupils to make links across the wider curriculum.

Displays/resources across school: RE displays within school regarding community cohesion,

the use of multicultural resources to reinforce the RE and BV curriculum.

Assemblies: Whole school RE assemblies (multicultural focus) to be carried out once a week

with a time for reflection (children given the opportunity to join in with reflection or sit quietly) and special visitor assemblies during specific religious festivals.

Clear and comprehensive RE scheme of work in line with NASACRE agreed syllabus

The teaching and learning of RE is planned explicitly within each year group and taught discretely as a stand-alone

subject for 50 min per week (or as a block of lessons over a half term)

RE programme of work is explicitly resourced: Children will become more aware of RE and have

the real purpose of it.

Children will learn primarily about Christianity and Judaism. Teachers will then decide on an

additional religion to study appropriate to their class demographic (this needs to be planned

for across year groups to ensure progression and no duplication)

Community – The curriculum is planned to enable children to work with local community groups

such as visiting the local residential home, working with local charities, collecting and

raising money for charities and food banks.

We aim to increase our learner’s engagement with activities that benefit other members

of the community and beyond.



Children will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual

respect, Rule of law and Liberty.

Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards tolerance, religion and diversity within

school and the wider world.

Children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum.

Children will develop positive relationships with their peers both now and in the future.

Children will understand the physical aspects involved in RSE at an age appropriate level.

Children will have respect for other cultures and faiths.

Children will have positive ideas about different people from different cultures/countries and

faiths and will challenge stereotypes within these areas.

Children stand up for what is right and positively speak out against inequalities such as racism.

Children learn to positively question others thinking and in turn question their own.
