For R.E., we follow the Coventry and Warwickshire syllabus. The purpose of R.E. is for children to learn about and from religions and world views in local, national and global contexts to discover, explore and consider different answers to questions that may arise. The children also learn to weigh up the value of wisdom from different sources, and to develop and express their insights in response, to agree or disagree respectfully.
In Early Years, pupils encounter Christianity and other faiths, as part of their growing sense of self and their place within the community.
In Key Stage 1, pupils gain an understanding of all six principal religions (Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism) to develop an understanding of the role of religion in encouraging forgiveness, bridge-building and reconciliation.
In Key Stage 2, pupils develop a deeper understanding of the six principal religions and appreciate that many people hold non-religious views. Pupils may also look at religious groups and individuals who work to foster good moral behaviour and what it means to be 'good'.
