RELIGIOUS EDUCATION (R.E)

Learning Pathway

R.E across the academy is broken down into specific R.E days throughout the year that focus on particular religions. Each Key Stage has two R.E days per half term totalling 12 hours of R.E per term.

Key Stage 2

‘Ready to learn’

Within KS2 pupils are taught the fundamental values that underpin each of the following religions; Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Sikhism. All pupils in KS2 are given the opportunity to learn about places of worship, key religious figures, religious symbols of each religion looked at, celebrations in each religion as well as how they are similar and different from one another. 

 

R.E is also interwoven throughout the curriculum where possible and all pupils take care in weekly key stage assemblies as well as whole school assemblies celebrating different religions such as harvest, remembrance, Christmas and Easter

 

Respect and acceptance of differences is a key aspect of the R.E curriculum and all pupils are expected to show mutual respect towards different cultures as part of British Values and Cultural Capital.

Key Stage 3

‘Ready for Independence

As pupils progress into KS3 it is expected that they build upon the knowledge of different religions learnt within KS2.

Pupils are encouraged to begin to take a more ethical and philosophical outlook on the religions being looked at. Questioning and discussion is encouraged to deepen the pupils understanding of the religions followed within the local and wider community. 

Pupils carry on to focus on the underpinnings of each religion, places of worship and key religious figures but in a greater detail to that learnt within KS2.

 

R.E is also interwoven throughout the curriculum where possible and all pupils take care in weekly key stage assemblies as well as whole school assemblies celebrating different religions such as harvest, remembrance, Christmas and Easter.

‘Ready for my future’

Within KS4 all pupils have the opportunity to complete an accreditation for each religion they look at over the course of two years. Pupils within the key stage are encouraged to take a philosophical and ethical outlook on the religions they look at as well as showing their maturity and that they are accepting of different religions and cultures that are in the community around them.
