RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

RE at Weatherfield Academy

Religious Education across the Academy is delivered through two focus days every half term exploring a range of different religions. The aim is that pupils will be able to explore religions in a greater depth, and have the chance to do this across all curriculum subjects in a vibrant and engaging manner. Religious Education is delivered to pupils in accordance with the R.E agreed syllabus for Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton 2018-2023. Throughout the academy we aim to look at six different religions across a two year rolling programme.
 
In Key stages 2 and 3 we aim to encourage an understanding of religions around the world, promoting engaging lessons whilst enhancing religious knowledge through visits to places of worship including Churches, Mandirs, Synagogues and Mosques as well as talks from religious leaders.

 

Within Key stage 4 we aim to not only build pupils understanding of religions around the world but also the chance to explore philosophical debates and issues surrounding these. Starting this year we are very excited for Key stage 4 pupils as they will work towards attaining an accreditation level 1 in each of the religions being looked at this year. Over the course of two years Key stage 4 pupils will attain 6 accreditation's.

Religions being explored this year (2019-2020) across the Academy are;
Autumn Term – Christianity
Spring Term – Judaism
​Summer Term – Islam

Religions being explored next year (2020-2021) across the Academy will be;
Autumn Term – Christianity
Spring Term – Sikhism (Spring 1) Hinduism (Spring 2)
​Summer Term – Buddhism (Summer 1) British Values (Summer 2)

 

All pupils will have the chance to take part in a number of different assemblies which will cover a range of celebrations such as Harvest, Remembrance Day, Christingle, Christmas and Easter.
