Religious Education (RE)
“'Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based, and which:
· Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils.
· Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.”
‘The National Curriculum in England: Framework document’, September 2013
With these aspirations, our intent for the RE curriculum are:
· To know about and understand a range of religions and world views.
· To express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and world views.
· To gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and world views.
· To respect ideas, religions and world views which may differ to our own.
· To have opportunities to gain cultural capital both within school and in the local community.
Through our curriculum, we hope for children to develop a secure understanding of the knowledge and concepts surrounding RE as well as developing positive attitudes to cultures and beliefs which vary from their own.
