RE is a golden thread of influence beyond a single lesson. We enable our children to develop a deeper understanding of Christianity as a global faith with world-Church links; to consider other world religions through exploring a range of faith-related questions; and to consider some of Life’s Big Questions. These 3 aspects guide us in looking inwards, projecting outwards through “social action and courageous advocacy” and enabling self-reflection. Our learning experiences both in and out of the classroom encourage children to develop their creativity, discussion and thinking skills and open their minds and hearts to understanding and accepting different world-views in our school’s diverse community.
We follow two schemes – Understanding Christianity and South Gloucestershire’s Agreed Syllabus.
Attached below is a document showing the yearly overview. This outlines the big questions that are explored each term for each year group.
