The teaching of RE sits under our over-arching curriculum policy which encompasses the threshold concepts, breadth of study and the milestones for progress by year group and key phase.
Our curriculum uses both the Rotherham Agreed Syllabus and the Church of England's 'Understanding Christianity' curriculum. Across the classes, our long term plan ensures that our children are learning about core Christian concepts alongside other world faiths.
RE enables our children to participate in an on-going search for wisdom. RE makes a distinctive contribution to the school curriculum by developing pupils' knowledge and understanding of religion, religious beliefs, practices, language and traditions and their influence on individuals, communities, societies and cultures.
We believe that children should develop a keen awareness, and understanding of the diverse cultures and the beliefs of their local community and the wider world. This ensures our children leave us with a well-rounded view and tolerance of world faiths, non-faiths and customs of many cultures.
We learn about and from RE in diverse ways. Take a look at our examples of work file to see us in action both inside and outside the classroom.
