Our RE curriculum is enquiry based, providing children the opportunity to explore religious ideas while reflecting on their own beliefs and identity. Children are encouraged to develop their own self-worth and beliefs while gaining knowledge of, and respect for, different people’s faiths, feelings and values.
The choices made within our RE curriculum will allow children to develop a deep understanding of religious beliefs. The curriculum promotes children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development while preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. The RE curriculum has a vital role to play in developing children as successful learners, confident individuals and positive contributors.
We follow the Somerset SACRE Scheme: Awareness, Mystery and Value (2019 Syllabus). This scheme reflects the fact that the religious and cultural heritage in Britain are in the main Christian, while taking into account the teaching and practices of Islam, Hinduism and Judaism.
