Children enjoy an RE curriculum which ensures they develop an understanding of the principal religions (beliefs, cultures and rituals) of families in their community, the local area, the UK and around the world.
Through education, we seek to reduce misunderstandings, eliminate discrimination and racism including the development of community cohesion by promoting mutual respect. We also explore children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through a clear model which includes personal reflection and developing thinking skills via an enquiry model.
The fundamentals of our curriculum is underpinned by the Leeds Locally Agreed Syllabus and also through close support from the resource available with membership of the NATRE (National Association of Teachers of Religious Education).
We are proud to teach RE as specific and dedicated days which enable all members of the school community to study an aspect of a specific religion in depth as a collective school family. Over time, pupils develop a deep understanding of each religion through their studies. KS2 children engage in a further day of Religious Education through a visit to different places of worship – this consists of one additional day per year. We ensure the delivery of the subject is delivered in creative ways and ensure that the children feel a part of a community.
In addition to RE days, pupils study Christianity and pupils have the opportunity to visit the church, to enjoy assemblies led by key members of the Christian faith and participate in school events which celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter.
