RE Curriculum Intent
Our main RE intent is that the children of our school are able to explore, be curious and gain knowledge of their own beliefs, values and traditions and those of others, in meaningful and engaging ways. As a result our pupils will be able to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance.
Our RE curriculum in KS1 studies the three main religions which are most prominent in our school community: Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. In KS2 knowledge of these three religions are built upon and Sikhism, Buddhism and ….. are also taught in 4 units which allow children to use their prior knowledge and make links with new knowledge to other religions. The units of work area taught at certain times of the year to ensure that children can make the link with particularly religious festivals pertaining to a variety of different faiths.
Through RE, the British Values of individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are taught and promoted. By the end of KS2 the children that leave us be able to appreciate and celebrate the diverse community they live in.
