Religious Education (RE)
Please have a look at what we are studying in RE across the whole school over the course of the year. During your childs time at primary school, they will study all 6 religious. However, 50% of the curriculum is based on Christianity and two focused areas of faith Islam and Sikhism which represents our school communities values and beliefs. As the new RE syllabus is developing we are trying to raise the profile of RE and make it more engaging so this year every class will be visiting a different place of worship in our local area to help support and enhance children's learning experiences.
The subject leader for RE is Miss Whiteside.
We follow Lancashire's SACRE which is committed to ensuring all children are getting quality RE in primary school.
At the heart of this syllabus is the quest to understand what it is to be human. By learning about religion we can become more open minded, respectful and achieve greater self-awareness. The skills and attitudes developed though RE can therefore make a significant contribution to promoting British Values and developing greater community cohesion.
We believe that it vital for all children to have a borad range of cultural experiences across key faiths. Therefore, special visits to these places of worship have been planned into our new curriculum.
