Our Learning – RE

Hello,

I’m Mrs Bailey and I am the RE coordinator for the school. I am enthusiastic in learning and respecting different religions.  I like to see children have the opportunity to learn about different religions (including non-religion beliefs) and discuss what they are, how they might link in with their own views, how they are similar and different. We are teaching from the new RE syllabus which has recently been implemented within teaching. This is a fantastic new syllabus as it looks into more discussions and linking to own views including people who have no religion.

 

RE Curriculum Intent

‘The principal aim of RE is to explore what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, so that pupils can gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living’.

 

Children should be taught:

  • about religious and non-religious beliefs in local, national and global contexts
  • to understand the impact and significance of religious and non-religious beliefs
  • to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, to develop and express their insights in response and to agree or disagree respectfully
  • to have the knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and beliefs, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities
  • to be able to make connections between religious and non-religious beliefs, concepts, practises and ideas studied
  • an aptitude for dialogue so that they can participate positively in our society, with its diverse religions and beliefs
  • to gain and deploy the skills needed to understand, interpret and evaluate texts. They should learn how to be resilient and independent and to articulate clearly their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.
