Religious Education

RE Statement of Intent

It is our intent for the Religious Education elements of our school curriculum to engage, inspire 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.

Aims of Religious Education

The national curriculum for religious education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religious traditions represented in Great Britain;
  • Develop understanding of the ways in which beliefs influence people in their behaviour, practices and in their communities;
  • Reflect on, deepen and clarify their own experiences, values and beliefs and those of others;
  • Develop awareness of fundamental questions about life arising from human experience and how religious beliefs and practices can relate to them;
  • Recognise the right of people to hold diverse beliefs and values and to develop positive attitudes of respect towards other people;
  • Benefit from opportunities to enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

We follow the Cheshire West and Chester Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Our RE leader was part of the group that wrote this syllabus. We are fortunate that our RE leader also teaches the subject to all Key Stage 2 classes. Parents can access our scheme of work which is based on this document. This was written by our subject leader along with Sue Glover (Primary RE Advisor).
