Through RE we encourage our children to learn from different religious beliefs, values and traditions while exploring their own beliefs. We believe R.E has an important role to play in preparing our pupils for adult life, employment and life long learning. We encourage all pupils to develop respect and acceptance for others in particular those whose faith and beliefs are different from their own.
RE at Cambois follows the Sacre guidance.
This is to:
To ensure high quality RE, it is recommended that the agreed syllabus, as well as meeting legal requirements should:
provide a clear structure which users find easy to follow and which highlights the contribution of RE to the curriculum
provide opportunities and examples to support the cross-curricular dimensions of the curriculum
ensure that learning in RE has both continuity and progression
have clear statements about expected standards and assessment arrangements
provide clear guidance about the process of learning that should underpin the planning of RE
provide appropriate levels of challenge for pupils of different ages and abilities - these should be progressive and demanding but realistic.
reflect curriculum developments nationally, such as the three aims of the curriculum, the use of key concepts, essential knowledge, key skills (including personal, learning and thinking skills) and the breadth of content, as set out in the RE programmes of study and learning.
We do this through a lot of learning about modern British Value and the use of whole school themed weeks centred around our PSHCE curriculum and learning through different beliefs and about difference beliefs.
We decide the religions, other than Christianity, to be studied by taking in to account of the balance of religion within:
o the school community
o the community within which the school is located
o the UK community o the global community.
and also current trends and issues within school.
