Curriculum Statement of Intent for RE
Curriculum Plans for Each Year Group
Please see Class Pages for more information on the Termly Curriculum Plans for each class.
Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Cambridgeshire Agreed Syllabus. As an Aided School with a Christian foundation, in each year there is a focus on Christianity plus the opportunity for pupils to learn about other religions and world views. RE enables pupils to appreciate their own and others’ beliefs and cultures, helping them to develop a clear understanding of the significance of religion in their own area as well as in the world today.
RE intends to promote religious understanding and respect, and to challenge prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping.
It is concerned with the promotion of each pupil’s self-worth, enabling them to reflect on their uniqueness as human beings, to share their feelings and emotions with others and to appreciate the importance of forming and maintaining positive relationships.
We strongly believe that the purpose of RE is about religious literacy. This means we aim for children to be able to hold a balanced and well-informed conversation about religion and belief. We do this by exploring and asking questions. We help children to question, to ponder and to wonder.
"World view": the way in which a person encounters, interprets, understands and engages with the world.
