Religious Education (RE)
All pupils in Years 2-6 take part in a Religious Education day once a half-term. Learning focuses on a key question, taken from the SACRE Agreed Syllabus and Scheme of work from Islington. In EYFS to Year 1, RE teaching is ongoing. RE content is covered through Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
Our RE curriculum includes study of the six major world religions: Christianity, Judaism Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism. We aim to teach stimulating and engaging RE lessons. This includes visits to places of worship, representatives from religious traditions visiting us, the use of artefacts, books, posters, videos and artwork, as well as drama, role play and dance. We believe that RE has an important part to play in promoting the spiritual, moral, social, cultural and intellectual development of our pupils by helping them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and building understanding and tolerance for people with different beliefs.
