Religious Education

The RE Curriculum

Rationale

At FMPS our school motto is ‘Forever Making Pupils Shine’ and this statement pervades all areas of school life and the curriculum. At our school, we believe that it is important for the Religious Education curriculum to engage, inspire, challenge and encourage pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to answer challenging questions. We believe it is vital that children recognise, understand and celebrate each other’s differences beliefs and cultures and expose children to these ideas through lessons, assemblies and woven into the school ethos.

What we intend our children to know

The RE curriculum in our school makes links between the beliefs, practices and value systems of a range of faiths and world-views studied. Children are given the opportunity to make comparisons between their own lives and the lives of people following different religions. The RE curriculum will help to develop responsibility and respect for all aspects of diversity, whether it be social, cultural or religious, and prepare pupils well for life in modern Britain.

Our curriculum reflects the complex, diverse and plural nature of worldviews, drawn from a range of religious, philosophical, spiritual and other approaches to life, including different traditions within Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, non-religious worldviews and concepts including Humanism.

How we will ensure pupils learn the knowledge that we have identified

The curriculum is organised in a progressive way which ensures the children have opportunities to revisit and build upon their knowledge and skills so that they can make links in their learning and deepen their understanding. It encourages pupils to consider how religious education promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice, preparing them for adult life, employment and life-long learning in a multicultural society.

Impact

Assessment for learning plays a critical role in identifying knowledge taught. Summative assessment is used as a tool to identify gaps in knowledge and to inform future planning.

Pupils will retain knowledge learnt in their long-term memory and will be able to use this knowledge in context, whilst also applying it in a wider context.

Pupils will be able to use this knowledge to then build upon as they grow through the school.
