Religious Education

How do we teach it? (Our implementation)

We teach RE using the ‘Northamptonshire agreed syllabus (SACRE) which scaffolds children to explore religions, engage with their knowledge and reflect on their learning and life.  We teach Christianity for over half of the RE curriculum.  Children also learn about different faiths from around the world, including Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Sikhism.  Included are many religious stories from these six faiths and all have an opportunity to learn from each other as they discover these.  Children’s visits to places of worship are key to understanding communities and visitors share the experience of faith with us.  The teaching of RE often crosses over into other subjects such as art, music, and we seek to enrich children’s learning in creative ways.

What is the difference that this makes? (Our impact)

As children progress through the school, they begin to understand that everyone is entitled to their own ideas about religion, whether they are believers or not.  They begin to understand that tolerance towards others and respect is a very important value.  It plays an important part in preparing our pupils for life in modern Britain.
