Religious Education Statement of Intent

It is our intent for the Religious Education element of our school curriculum to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions, explore different religious beliefs, values and traditions and develop a more rigorous understanding of the numerous religious traditions, beliefs and practices that are followed in our multi-cultural society. We want them to know how religious education promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice, preparing them for adult life, employment and life-long learning.

Implementation

Impact

  1. To build a curriculum subject which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge.

 

To design a curriculum subject with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the Wakefield Agreed Syllabus so that children can reach and exceed their potential.

Wakefield Agreed Syllabus research indicates that pupils should extend their knowledge and understanding of religions and worldviews, recognising their local, national and global contexts. They should be introduced to an extended range of sources and subject specific vocabulary. They should be encouraged to be curious and to ask increasingly challenging questions about religion, belief, values and human life. Pupils should learn to express their own ideas in response to the material they engage with, identifying relevant information, selecting examples and giving reasons to support their ideas and views.

School : children evidence a positive

approach and engagement towards the

Religious Education units of work.

Scheme of work:

School follows the Programme of Study for RE as suggested in the Wakefield Agreed Syllabus and has a scheme of work that reflects this for each Key Stage.

During each Key Stage pupils are taught knowledge, skills and understanding through learning about Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Jewish people through three key questions: Believing, Expressing and Living.

Each unit of work identifies prior learning and shows how this is built upon.

Teaching:

RE is taught in a block unit at the end of each term to allow suitable links to be made to specific religious festivals taking place.

Resources:

Children gain a deeper understanding of the religion studied through the use of high quality resources/artefacts.

Children will make at least good

progress from their last point of

statutory assessment or from their starting point in Nursery.

 

This will be measured by the:

Progress from a child’s starting point

or from the last point of statutory

assessment.

Attainment at each point of statutory assessment.
