RE

 

As a Church of England School we seek to promote the Christian values of collective and individual care and responsibility; this goes hand in hand with our school vision for every child to be “Caring, Confident and Committed to their learning.”   The school aims to "...serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.”

The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

The RE syllabus (Worcester Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity)  is based around a key question approach, where the questions open up the content to be studied.  These questions support teachers in delivering high-quality RE that enables coherence and progression.  The key questions give structured support in terms of ‘emerging’, ‘expected’ and ‘exceeding’ learning outcomes and suggested content to enable good planning and progression.

Pupils will be taught in class groups, following a whole school 2 year plan and units of work by RE Today.  Teachers will differentiate their approach and strategies to take account of pupils’ individual ability.  Work in RE is not always in written form and there is more of an emphasis on discussion, drama, dance, music and art. 

Syllabus Content

The syllabus requires that all pupils learn from Christianity in each key stage.  In addition, pupils will learn from the principal religions represented in the UK, in line with the law.  Non-religious worldviews including for example Humanism will also be  the focus for study.

Religious traditions are studied in depth as follows
