Religious Education enables pupils to encounter Christianity as the religion that shaped British culture and heritage and influences the lives of millions of people today. Religious Educations enables pupils to learn about other major religions and non-religious worldviews, their impact on culture and politics, art, and history, and on the lives of their adherents, enabling them to express ideas and insights. We promote young people’s interest in, and aim to contribute, to the development of pupils’ own spiritual/philosophical convictions, exploring and enriching their own faith, beliefs, and values.
DEEP Curriculum Overview
Within RE we have found that pupils often find it easier to understand an issue when they look at it initially from a personal perspective. Throughout their studies, pupils will develop their discussion, debate and argument-formation skills, in line with our DEEP curriculum. Pupils will also be involved in research tasks and problem-solving activities. Wherever possible we try to use media stimulus (Film, TV, music for example) to engage pupils in their learning. The DEEP curriculum in RE is a five-year journey with each stage carefully designed to help pupils progress seamlessly onto next steps.
