RE

The aim of Religious Education is that pupils will know about and

understand a range of religions and world views. They will express ideas and insights

of their own into the significant human questions which religions address, gaining and

deploying the skills needed to study religion.

 

At Southglade Primary and Nursery School the curriculum for religious education aims to ensure that all pupils:

A. Know about and understand a range of religions and world views, so that they can:

• Describe, explain and analyse beliefs and practices, recognising the diversity

which exists within and between communities;

• Identify, investigate and respond to questions posed by, and responses offered by

some of the sources of wisdom1 found in religions and world views;

• Appreciate and appraise the nature, significance and impact of different ways of

life and ways of expressing meaning.

 

B. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions

and world views, so that they can:

• Explain reasonably their ideas about how beliefs, practices and forms of

expression influence individuals and communities;

• Express with increasing discernment their personal reflections and critical

responses to questions and teachings about identity, diversity, meaning and value;

• Appreciate and appraise varied dimensions of religion.

 

C. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and world

views, so that they can:

• Find out about and investigate key concepts and questions of belonging, meaning,

purpose and truth, responding creatively;

• Enquire into what enables different communities to live together respectfully for the

wellbeing of all;

• Articulate beliefs, values and commitments clearly in order to explain reasons why

they may be important in their own and other people’s lives.
