RE

“RE is like an iceberg. As you unpack ideas, you come to understand deeper meaning” - Year 9 pupil

 

Purpose of study 

Religious education will enable children to make sense of religion and worldviews and begin to understand the complex world in which they live. It will also support pupils’ religious literacy: their ability to hold balanced and well-informed conversations about religions and worldviews. Our curriculum uses a multi-disciplinary approach to develop religious literacy through the disciplines of theology, philosophy and human/social sciences. Through theology children will explore questions and answers that arise from inside religions and worldviews. Through philosophy children will explore questions and answers raised through considering the nature of knowledge, existence and morality. Whilst human/social sciences will allow children to explore questions and answers relating to the impact of religions and worldviews on people and their lives. Resultantly, our curriculum will inspire children to be inquisitive learners who are confident to explore religion and investigate a range of topics and issues.

 

Aims

Spring Meadow’s Religious Education curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Know about and understand a range of religious and non-religious worldviews by learning to see these through theological, philosophical and human/social science lenses
  • Know and have an understanding of significant people and events relating to the five key religions such as special people, special objects, stories, places of worship and key celebrations/festivals.  
  • Apply knowledge and understanding of the different religions to answer challenging questions through engagement, investigation and evaluation.  
  • Gain an understanding of how significant events in each religion links to British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, tolerance and mutual respect. 
  • Gain awareness and show sensitivity towards the beliefs and moral values of other religions within our multicultural society.    

Organisation

  • Religious Education is taught in topics throughout the school year aiming to give children the ability to learn about a variety of religious and non-religious worldviews. 
  • The curriculum is divided into topics and questions which each relates to one of the three disciplinary lenses (theology, philosophy and human/social sciences). There is a balance of questions from each discipline spread over each year group as shown through the highlighted key in the unit planner.
  • Religious education will be taught during time set aside in the afternoon for the foundation subjects.
